Ginkgos & Cool Conifers

Here’s a group that’s close to my heart, I was introduced to Ginkgo blob form and cultivars by the great nurseryman Ian Fitzroy. He loved the differing habits, leaf forms and structures of the prehistoric Ginkgo or Maidenhair Tree and taught me how to graft and replicate them sharing his boundless enthusiasm. If you can take a few minutes look at them they are hardy, easy to grow and just plain wonderful.

Cool conifers you ask? Yes, well I think so and really think we should all look at this group of plants again as wonderful structural plants perfect for complementing many gardens of differing styles – go on – have a look.
