Thanks for the reply Shirley Your theory sounds feasable and yes I have observed seedling coming up in pots and areas free of Eucalyptus leaves. I guess what I was wondering was why established Eucalptus continue to grow in their own waste.

Alellophathy

In Peter's book he states plants won't grow in their own waste. I see no evidence that this is the case with Eucalypts. In fact they seem to thrive in their own waste.
