A truly ancient living fossil. Dinosaurs strolled past these trees. In a taxonomic group of its own.

How to grow Ginkgo bonsai trees
Site outdoors in full sun. Perhaps partial shade in summer. While Gingko bonsai are frost hardy, its probably better to move them into a greenhouse or cool conservatory if possible, especially for smaller bonsai.
We recommend: Keeping the tree outdoors during warmer weather and moving it under glass during the winter.
Aim to keep the soil evenly moist, like a damp cloth feels during winter. Water daily during growing season and in hot weather.
I find it doesn’t suit traditional bonsai styles. Better to grow as a loose broom. I think Poplar when I prune these trees, ie a flame shape.
Ginkgo do not suffer from many pests in the UK. Probably because it is so different to any other trees found here natively.
Repot every couple of years.
