How to grow eucalyptus baby blue?

It is easy for eucalyptus to reseed itself in warmer climates and it grows quickly even in soil conditions that are not ideal. However, in order to start the process of germination, certain varieties of eucalyptus call for a process called cold stratification. This requires the seed to be chilled. Some of the varieties of eucalyptus that require cold stratification are as follows:

To cold stratify the seeds of eucalyptus trees, combine one teaspoon of seeds (five millilitres) with two to three tablespoons (thirty to forty-four millilitres) of a filler such as sand, perlite, or vermiculite. After adding some water to the mixture, seal it in a plastic bag, label it, and date it, then store it in the refrigerator for up to six weeks. After that period of time has passed, you are free to sow the seeds, along with the inert filler.
