A very unique tree. Ginkgo trees can grow large, over 30m tall with extreme specimens reaching over 50m in good climates. A very hardy and long-lived tree, it is often planted in urban environments, parks and temples. Its unique foliage gives its name, for the leaves often have two lobes, although not always. The trees are dioecious, with male and female trees. The female ginkgo tree produces a fruit that ripens to an orange colour in the fall time, and contains a thinly-shelled seed within.
Germination: Soak in water for 24 hours. Cold stratify for 60 days, then plant in a mulched seed bed.
Packet contains at least 10 seeds.
