HISTORY:

Ginkgo is the oldest surviving tree on earth today.

Many companies offer ginkgo as a commercial preparation since it is not available as a bulk herb. Follow the directions on the package you purchase. Most preparations are in pill form.

USE: (Grow Your Own)

Ginkgo is an attractive yard or street tree that can be grown throughout much of the USA. Saplings can be purchased at a nursery. Use well drained soil and stakes so that plants will grow straight. Water regularly until they reach 20 feet. After they reach that height, they become self sufficient. The ginkgo tree will grow up to 2 feet yearly.
