growing a ginko tree from a sucker
I have a ginko tree growing very close to the house, about 2' by 2' from the porch. The people before me were Japanese and just threw the seeds whereever, and of course the one by the house grew. In order to keep it alive I have had to trim it every year and unfortunately top it.I treat it as a large Bonsia. If it does become too large it will have to be cut down. It has many suckers that grow from the base and also this year one from a root piece. Last year I tried by cutting and growing in a jar, no luck. This year I tried cutting this small root section with the sucker and planted in a pot and kept moist. I'm not sure on this yet, it looks pretty unhappy at moment. Is there any way other than seeds? I have many people that would like a piece of the tree.
