There must be a way to do so, as I bought eucalyptus growing in dirt at a Mennonite green house one year. I have also started Baby’s Breath before from seed.

Baby’s breath is extremely easy to grow. I threw some seeds on the dirt, sprinkled some compost on top…and walah..Don’t know about eucalyptus, but I love the smell of it, when it’s dry!!! Gysophinillia, is an annual. there are perennial types of Babe’s breath though..

Both Eucalyptus and baby’s breath can be grown quite easily from seed.

Eucalyptus plants cover a really wide group of species, with differing cultural and growing requirements. Try to find one that matches your local climate well. Eucalyptus gunnii is one of the hardiest, and Eucalyptus globulus is one that I started growing when I was at school – it’s not so hardy, not usually taken to freezing weather well. Also, they all have differing foliage, so choose one that suits you, as well as your garden and available space – some of them will happily grow to 100′ in height!

Baby’s breath is very easy, and its seeds are readily available from nurseries.

Hope this helps. Good luck! Rob
