Details

A very interesting species of tree to cultivate as bonsai and one that has quite a romantic history http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ginkgo_biloba

Ginkgo are easy to cultivate and are fully frost hardy. The tree does resent root disturbance so re-potting should only be done when absolutely necessary. Brilliant yellow autumn colour before the leaves.

Let me tell you a little story, seriously this is no word of a lie. Every once in a while even a blind squirrel finds a nut. This Ginkgo is mine. A couple of years ago I was in a European importing nursery when I came across this tree planted in a plastic basket. Big ginkgo are rare so I took a peek at the price tag. Any idea? €5345.00 SERIOUSLY. I asked my guy if he had made a mistake which apparently he had not. The next day the story came out. The tree was purchased from a well known bonsai master in Japan as a special commission for a customer. Upon seeing the tree they decided not to buy. The tree then fell into neglect, the top died and it ended up in a bucket before meeting me. The first year I got the tree growing like a weed before giving it a restyle and some carving work last winter. This summer the ramification has begun to develop and now the tree is starting to come together nicely. A couple more years in this oversize pot will see the tree ready for the show bench and the best bit? SAVE YOURSELF THE BETTER PART OF £4000!
