I grew a dozen Gingkos from seed - it's a business, and five died, but the remaining seven are doing very well.  It will be some years before I can put these in the ground.  This tree is very slow growing, but so beautiful and worth the wait.

I love the delicate leaves of this dinosaur tree. Don't like the looks of its bare branches in winter though.
