Ginkgo biloba 'Magyar' is a male, upright, pyramidal form with ascendinging, upright branches covered in the classicly formed ginkgo leaves, turning from green to a uniform blaze of butter yellow in the utumn. This form was discovered growing on the Magyar Bank in New Brunswick, New Jersey, and is desirable as a specimen or looks as a small group due to it's tidy shape. Can reach 20 foot in 25 years.

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.
