|Male Ginkgo biloba, grown from seed,, at 20 years old. 10.21.18|
Some day, we expect to sell the old place. Anticipating that, a few years ago I cut grafting scion from lower twigs of this tree, and grafted them to rootstocks grown from locally collected seeds. Of those, 2 took but only one survived planting. I'll sho that later. That tree has taken hold and is now about 5 feet tall. Along way to go before it is this magestic, but a hopeful development.
I'll intend to post photos of the other ginkgo trees later. This is the best of the lot. My dad collected the seeds in his neighborhood in Quincy, Illinois, and gave me the seeds. I sprouted those in flowerpots and when I moved to Vancouver, WA, three of those seedlings moved with me. One of the others is at our country place in Battle Ground, WA, and the other did not survive transplanting there.
|Same tree at about 8 years old.|
