ABOUT THIS TREE XL 3-4′ Overall Ginkgo Biloba, Maidenhair Tree, TRANSCENDENT A leaf fossil of this unique plant dates back 270 million years. The beautiful fan shaped leaves of Ginkgo create a feeling of peace and serenity in the garden. Ginkgo has been used as a medicinal herb and culinary delight for centuries. The bright green leaves of all year are wondrously transformed to brilliant yellow gold in the fall. Truly a sight to behold in any garden. These are very healthy Trees with well established root systems. The growth rate of Ginkgo Biloba, Maidenhair will vary greatly depending on soil type, sunlight, temperature and other factors. Lower leaves are trimmed prior to shipping to reduce transpiration and travel stress.

TREE CARE Ginkgo Biloba, Maidenhair are very easy to grow Trees that require little care. They add a tasty accent to any outdoor space, garden or patio. In very cold zones a containerized Tree can be brought inside for the winter months. In the northern end of their grow zone Ginkgo Biloba, Maidenhair Trees should be brought indoors or protected with mulch during the winter months. When you receive your new Ginkgo Biloba, Maidenhair Tree, there is no need to worry about planting right away. Your new Tree can be stored for a while by simply placing it in a bucket with about a half inch of water in the bottom and moving it to a shady location. You can then add some mulch to the bucket to keep your Tree standing upright. The mulch will also supply nutrients while in storage. This will give you plenty of time to select the ideal location for your new Tree.

CONTAINER SIZE Ginkgo Biloba, Maidenhairs grow very well in patio containers. Allow enough room for growth generally a 18″ to a 24″ diameter, 10″ deep container will suffice. Remember the looser the roots, the taller and healthier your Tree will be. When the Tree becomes root bound its growth will slow. At that point it is time for a larger pot.

SOIL Ginkgo Biloba, Maidenhairs enjoy well drained but moist, rich organic mix. Remember try to stay away from wet, mucky or dry, sandy soils.

FERTILIZER To help establish your new Ginkgo Biloba, Maidenhair Tree, fertilize sparingly at least 6 inches away from the base, tri-annually with a slow time release 15-5-10. Unfertilized they will tend to grow very slowly. Note: The heavy salts in cheaper fertilizers will damage the roots and possibly kill the tree.

GROW ZONE & LIGHT Best outdoors if grown in zone 10-11, find your zone here. This Tree requires 80-100% sunlight. Depending on your location full sun is best. At the northern end of their grow zone Ginkgo Biloba, Maidenhair Trees should be brought indoors or protected during the winter months. The patio zone is 4a-9b which means the potted Tree will flourish over the summer months in colder zones but must be brought inside before harsh winter temps.

BEFORE YOU PLANT OUTDOORS Here at Kens Nursery these Ginkgo Biloba, Maidenhairs are grown under 20-40% shade cloth. If you Tree directly in full sun you may experience leaf burn. It is best to acclimate this Tree to its environment by keeping it outside and slowly moving it into a sunny area over a week or two to avoid stress before planting.
