    Today after a long time on order, we received in the post a lovely Ginkgo biloba 'Variegata'.
    This has been a tree my wife has wanted for a couple of years now, so I thought it would be nice to create a thread to chart it's progress.
    It is only two feet tall atm, but with good care it should reach 10ft in several years time.
    This is our second Ginkgo and I hope it will contrast well with our older tree.

    Thanks D, sometimes you have to have a contrast to our maples, but only sometimes, Lol.

    Your 100% right D. I also think companion plants are sometime needed.

    Couldn't agree more D, companion planting sets our maples off so much better than stand alone.
