Product Information

A real relic, Gingko Biloba, also known as Maidenhair, was long around before man but is more popular than ever right now! Known for its many health benefits thanks to its use in Chinese medicine, and now in western medicine, Gingko Biloba is a truly unique conifer/fern-like evergreen tree that makes a real statement.

With bright, fresh green leaves in the spring that often turn an eye-catching yellow in the autumn, the Gingko Biloba tree makes a magnificent centre piece and will grow up to 10m tall if left alone but don't let this put you off if you don't have much space as it can be easily pruned and trimmed to keep to a manageable shape and size! It's a hardy tree and will thrive in a sunny spot in a UK garden.

Gingko Biloba has long been studied for its health benefits and is now widely used in medicine across the globe. From improving memory to its antioxidant benefits, it's certainly worth harvesting in your own back garden - even if just for the spectacular foliage display.

Supplied as an established plant in a 19cm pot, ready to plant.

Top Tips

Pot-grown trees can be planted at any time of the year as long as the soil is not waterlogged or frozen.

Care Information

Planting Advice for your Ginkgo biloba:

  • Grow in a sunny site in well-drained soil.
  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting. We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots and add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot and refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling)
    Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
  • If you're planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast. Use the best compost you can buy and some sand or grit for drainage.

Aftercare advice for Gingko biloba:

  • As a small tree it will be happy with restricted growth, and you will need to change the potting mix regularly - every other year. Just put it back into the same container, replacing the soil as you do so.
  • Keep plants well-watered while they establish, especially if planted up in a pot.
  • Fully hardy protect from cold winds as it is these that tend to cause the most damage to young plants. 

Pruning Advice:

  • No pruning is necessary.
