Description Plant Care  Videos Q & A Description

Ginkgo biloba 'Tubifolia' is a fascinating shrubby tree, with thin, twiggy growth. This forms two distinct types of foliage: on mature wood the leaf is fused to resemble a small green trumpet while the younger wood produces a classic Ginkgo leaf but with a more jagged outline. As the tree matures, the majority of the foliage will be trumpet shaped. Very unusual and highly sought after.

Plant Care

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.
