Gingko biloba

We moved the Gingko this spring.

Now we can see it.

Pretty little thing.

It's hard to imagine it will ever get big.

That has been in my hands so many times, and I put it down, picked it up, put it down. I really have to get one. I love the colour of the foliage, and the shape of the leaf.

Lovely colour,gingko biloba is very good as a supplement for circulation disorders

Mine is only small too.  The fruits of the female are meant to smell rotten, but when buying I couldn't tell m from f so I have been rather optimistic putting it on my drive hoping that it's male.

Lovely leaf colour and shape.  I was looking at one the other day which would have stood about 4 feet planted but it had no price on and I was afraid to ask!

Rachel they are such a lovely tree and as prehistoric as Wollomi Pine and Tree Ferns but a little bit tougher... dont plan on basking in it's shade though for a long time :-)

I'm very pleased with the Gingko too since we moved it. We moved a faster-growing tree into its place so don't need to worry about the Gingko being so small.
