Gardening in Southwest Washington State. Aiming for good food, sustainability, diversity, ecological balance. Learning from tradition, science, experience, and experimentation. Growing fruits, vegetables, trees, and flowers. Growing from seeds, cuttings, divisions, and grafting. Puttering meditation.
This big ginkgo tree is about 6 blocks away fro our house. She is female, leaving a few fruits to be picked up by the ginkgo enthusiast. No time for that this year. I still have a number of seedlings in need of homes.
This tree was waist high when planted here last year. It has had a slow start, groing in pots. Probably about 8 years old, planted from Quincy seed and grown in a flower pot. About 1/2 of the growth has occurred since planting in the ground last fall.
