Ginkgo biloba 'Samurai'
Ginkgo biloba 'Samurai' is a male selection of Ginkgo of outstanding pyramidal form, wide fan-shaped green leaves
with golden yellow autumn color. Eventually reaching up to 4m high and 2m wide. Matures to a medium to large tree. Can be planted as a specimen or against a wall, a rare but wonderful choice.
All forms of Ginkgo biloba are extremely hardy and tolerant of a wide range of conditions. If planting in the ground we recommend using good planting compost with root grow and keeping the soil moist but not waterlogged for the first 6 months. Thereafter an annual top dressing with a good fertilizer is beneficial but not essential. Pruning is not necessary except when shaping is required and this should take place in the dormant period.
If planting in a container, use ericaceous compost mixed with 10% John Innes no. 3 added and feed through the growing period with a good general fertiliser - we use organic seaweed extract. If possible, try to avoid the pot freezing for prolonged periods in the winter months. Re-pot every 2-3 years into the next sized container.
