Leaf loss

The young Ginkgo biloba, also known as the Japanese Gingko tree, is known for its unique leaf loss. In autumn, the bright green, fan-shaped leaves turn into a beautiful golden yellow before they all fall from the tree simultaneously.


Growth habit

The Ginkgo biloba develops into a pyramidal structure with a broad, round crown in adulthood. This tree grows steadily and can reach considerable heights while maintaining its characteristic shape.


Leaf shape and color

The leaf of the Japanese Gingko tree has a unique fan shape and an incised tip. The leaf of the Ginkgo biloba is bright green and turns into deep golden yellow in autumn before falling from the tree.


Fruits and scent

Only in advanced age does the female tree bear fruit. These appear simultaneously with the autumn coloration on the tree and emit a strong scent when ripe.


Survival tree

The Ginkgo biloba is also a very resilient tree that can withstand air pollution well and can live for a very long time. The Ginkgo biloba is also known as the survival tree because it is the only tree species to have survived the atomic bomb explosion in Hiroshima.


How to plant the tree?

  1. Determine the final location of the tree and ensure it is free from cables, debris, old plants, and other obstacles that may hinder the tree's growth.
  2. Dig a planting hole that is twice the width of the root ball. Loosen the soil at the bottom of the planting hole and mix the excavated soil with (organic) garden soil or planting substrate.
  3. Adjust the planting hole to the height where the root ball fits and firmly press the soil.
  4. Fill the planting hole with water and wait for it to settle. Check if the root ball is sufficiently moist.
  5. Place the tree or plant in the planting hole. It is extremely important that the tree is not planted too deep, as this can cause root rot.
  6. Insert a tree stake or bamboo stake firmly into the ground on the side of the tree where the most wind comes from.
  7. Now, place the watering ring or create a mound of soil around the tree so that water can seep into the ground.
