Ginkgo Questions

1. How quickly do Ginkgo trees grow?

Ginkgo trees typically grow at 30-60 cm in height each year. In ideal conditions, such as full sun, well-drained soil, and with regular watering, ginkgo trees in New Zealand can grow more quickly.

2. Do you need two Ginkgo trees?

Whether or not you need two ginkgo trees depends on your personal preferences and the goals for your garden. They are dioecious, meaning that there are separate male and female trees. Female trees produce fruit, which can be messy and smelly. Male trees do not produce fruit, but they do produce pollen, which can be a problem for people with allergies.

If you do not want to deal with the mess or smell of fruit, or if you have allergies to pollen, you may want to plant only male ginkgo trees. However, if you want to attract pollinators to your garden, or if you want to experience the full life cycle of a ginkgo tree, you may want to plant both a male and a female tree.

3. Are Ginkgo trees hard to grow?

Ginkgo trees are relatively easy to grow, but they do have a few specific requirements. They prefer full sun or partial shade, a well-drained soil, and regular watering. They are tolerant of a wide range of soil types.

4. Which Ginkgo tree is the best?

There are two main species of ginkgo trees: Ginkgo biloba, the common ginkgo, and Ginkgo wushengensis, the Wushan ginkgo. G. biloba is the more widely grown and popular of the two species.

Ginkgo biloba is a large, deciduous tree that can grow up to 30 m tall and 15 m wide. It has a distinctive fan-shaped leaf that turns golden yellow in autumn. It is also known for its longevity, and some trees are believed to be over 1,000 years old.

Ginkgo wushengensis is a smaller tree than G. biloba, with a more upright growth habit. The leaves of G. wushengensis are also slightly different, being more oval-shaped and less deeply lobed than the leaves of G. biloba. G. wushengensis is less commonly grown than G. biloba, but it is a good choice for smaller gardens.

There are Ginkgo biloba cultivars available, each with its own unique features and some of the more popular include:

The best ginkgo tree for you will depend on your individual needs and preferences. Consider the size and shape of the tree, the colour of the leaves in autumn, and the growing conditions in your garden when making your decision.
