Ginko biloba

Ginko biloba

Some of you may recall that last year I was worried about my Ginko tree.

It just wasn't thriving and was looking very sorry for itself.

Well, it must like cold winters because it has made a miraculous recovery and is looking really well.

Looking good, great to get surprises like that, when you thought it was in trouble.

Just googled it,   will you get fruit on it ??

Don't remember you mentioning it last year but it is great news. It is a funny tree that will give a spurt of growth one year and not do much for the next five.

A lovely recognisable leaf, that even I know! Looks healthy.

Yes, great news, Fran.

Never heard about fruit, Clare.

Good news then, Martin. I hope it doesn't sulk for th next 5 years.

It is a great tree to have, Myrtle & Keego. Sorry about yours, Keego. Bad winter : (

Liga, I think it's an oddity that many of us want. How big is the one in Riga. i think they get fairly big!
