Ginkgo biloba, a prehistoric super tree!
By Ben Robinson, Feb 24 2015 09:23AM
Recognisable Ginkgos first appeared in the Permian era around 270 million years ago. Several different species evolved despite the mass extiction at the end of this geological period. They continued to thrive throughout the Mesozoic era sharing the land with many early dinosaurs. By the end of the Pliocene, however, only one species remained, surviving in China and is still the only species within it's distinct genus. The species is now commonly cultivated and used in food and as medicine. Below is a picture of a fossilised Ginkgo leaf from the middle Eocene!

Happy New Year, Happy New Garden!

So we've got through the festive period and it's time to start thinking about getting our garden's into shape before spring is upon us. Many customers ask us is now a good time to prune? Trees are (virtually) dormant during the winter and pruning during these months encourages healthier growth over the next growing season. Trees that flower in mid-summer should also be pruned now to promote a healthy bloom. Do your tree's need some TLC?
