We have a Eucalyptus in a pot on the patio. It was bought last year.It was outside during the winter,but sheltered under a veranda. It seemed fine, but did get wheeled out too early,a small number of leaves looked the worse for wear. Now it looks as if half the tree/shrub has turned brown.It is about 7ft high.
Is there hope?



Where there's life, there's hope! Eucs stump sprout very easily, and as long as there are live stems near the base, it will come back--often prettier!

But a word about the pot - Eucalyptus likes to put down very deep roots, and so will not survive for any length of time contained in a pot. You might get away with a very deep pot (over 2 feet, preferably more) if you stool it down to about 2 inches every March or April and grow it as a shrub.
