Nandina domestica 'Woods Dwarf'
The Ginkgo or Maidenhair tree makes a remarkable feature in any garden and is renowned for its spectacular yellow autumn colour. Ginkgos are often seen as large trees in parks and gardens. However there are many varieties of Ginkgo biloba grown by us that are suitable for smaller gardens or courtyards. Ginkgos are very well suited to container growing where they will live happily for many years with minimal attention and occasional feeding. We have several twenty year old specimens thriving in pots.
Ginkgos are remarkably easy to care for and will grow in most conditions from sun through to shade The Ginkgo tree is completely hardy and often makes an excellent alternative to the Japanese maple. There are particularly dwarf varieties such as Ginkgo biloba 'Troll' which has a very small habit right up to larger columnar growing trees such as Gingko biloba 'Tremonia'. There is a size and shape of Ginkgo for every garden - have a look below for further information.
