RE: Your Garden, our photos

Thats quite a list,you must have a big yard.
I planted a Ginko Autumn Gold but it's still small.How big is yours?and how fast of a grower is it?


RE: Your Garden, our photos

I actually just planted it in fall. I bought a 2" caliper and it cost a pretty penny...$300 after a $60 discount. It had a perfect globe shape, I couldn't resist.

I know they are extremely slow growing. My neighbor has a male ginko(can't say its Autumn Gold for sure) but he planted a 8ft tree 12 years ago and its about 15ft tall now.

An older subdivision down the road has a ginko that is about 50ft tall. I'd say it about 30 years old based on the look of the house. Seams like after they establish themselves they do have a good growth rate. This tree is probably the coolest tree I have ever seen. Thing looked like the sun in fall.

RE: Your Garden, our photos

love the idea! I haven't documented my flowers so a list may take a while, possibly some research and very possibly waiting for spring / summer growth- LOL. Also only a few pics but plan to adjust that now that I have a new camera. Think we can make this a summer project for 2009?
