Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba), packet of 20 seeds [INTL NO]
Family: Ginkgo (Ginkgoaceae)
Hardy to Zones 3 to 12.
(Bai-guo, Maidenhair Tree) Perennial, deciduous, dioecious tree native to eastern China. Ginkgo is not self-fertile, it is dioecious (individual flowers are either male or female, but only one sex is to be found on any one plant). Both male and female plants must be grown if seed is required. We cannot sex our seedlings until they become adults, which may take years, so its pot luck as far as sexual identity is concerned. We normally plant things of this nature in 3s. Darwin called it a “living fossil.” The trees are resilient, adaptable to the inner city or the farm. Trees prefer full sun, moderately moist soil, and are pansies about their roots–they do not like root disturbance. Maidenhair trees are also exceedingly beautiful, with lithe, humanoid trunks and deeply grooved, bi-lobed leaves. We provide moist, cold-stored seed. Sow immediately upon receipt. Seeds begin germinating 33 days after planting in a warm place. Typical germination rate is 40%. Very gratifying to watch germinate.
