Looking for nursery for Ginkgo seedlings (bareroot)

i am looking for a wholesale nursery that will sell seedlings in batches of -say fifty or one hundred. - bare root

The seedlings i need are only of Ginkgo. Got any ideas? It's for the purpose of Ginkgo hedges. I have one hedge, but now, others want one too. mine is about 1000 seedlings from local seed trees, but they are a very unreliable source.

A Ginkgo hedge is a very rare thing because it's hard to find enough cheep seedlings!

Please ask around about this. the old-timers may know of a wholesale nursery that sells ginkgo seedling by the hundreds.
PS: back-in-the-day, (1970s) someone would get a lot of (bonsai) club members to order together to get enough for a wholesale order of seedlings. but I don't remember the name of the nursery. thought it might be Hess in New Jersey, but can't find much of them on the net.

Anything you can find on this would be greatly appreciated. Please ask people about it!

Just curious if you ever found your source?

I lived in DC where at the Bicentennial, Japan gave DC a bunch of Ginko trees. They're planted on Corcoran Street, N.W. Now, I can't say they were planted anywhere else, but maybe. Unfortunately they were all female.

The stench in the summer.
Did I mention the goo on the sidewalks?
The tracking it all over the place!?

I'd love to see pics of your hedge. It sounds really lovely.
I just can't imagine if it were female....!

someday will pub. photos of the hedge.

I found this place online recently: Japanese Maples and Evergreens which sells some lovely varieties of Ginko. I've got a few pinned I'd like to have.

Depending upon what you find, I'd be interested in contributing. I'm also interested in your handle, as I'm an avid (read: OCD) Japanese maple collector! Ginkos would be a nice expansion, as ginger is for hosta! :)
