Plant Care

Ginko biloba care info:

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.
