Ginkgo- Maidenhair Tree

Deciduous tree; it looks like an ordinary foliage tree, but actually belongs to a separate class of gymnosperms .

Situation:

Initially a small column, but it will ultimately grow into an enormous tree, far too large for an ordinary garden. However, this will not happen in your lifetime.

Soil:

Any improved garden soil is suitable. Propagation From cuttings in summer.

Ginkgo biloba: Height to 30 m, at first columnar in shape, later pyramidal. Branching starts low on the trunk; mature branches grow horizontally, drooping slightly at the tip. The twigs are bare, greyish in colour. The remarkable fan-shaped leaves are yellow in spring, green in summer, with fine autumn colouring. After a warm summer female trees will produce plum-like fruits.
