You have a Woolworth's still! Long gone in the UK, Pat. I think my eucalyptus is E. globulus. We have a collection of Western Australian plants in the Bristol Botanic Garden as part of the Mediterranean type of plants collection but NSW is probably quite different. I remember Monty doing a series once where he visited some Australian gardens. I remember some were influenced by the settlers of old. We have another brilliant day in Bristol so feel the warmth! I will take a picture of my eucalyptus for you and post it when it is not quite so bright. It looks great when the bark is peeling and the new trunk shines out red in the evening light.
