I noticed two seeds under the two very large Ginkgo trees at Kikuit, the Rockefeller estate (now open to the public) in the Hudson Valley of NY, and I pocketed them. I am currently following your stratification directions. They are in the crisper until March, not outside. It was 10 degrees Fahrenheit below zero yesterday morning! I don't know if they will germinate, but I am grateful to you for creating and maintaining this excellent resource on the web.

A female ginkgo planted by my late father has been very productive in most years (except one with early false spring followed by cold snap).
To neutralize the smell when cleaning the nuts I wash them with eco-friendly detergent and a spoonful of food-grade hydrogen peroxide, then rinse with clean water. I got the idea from the recipe for washing skunk smell out of a dog's fur. (That recipe also includes baking soda but I didn't need the soda, as long as I used H2O2.)

Dear Ms. Cor Kwant,
Congratulations for your wonderful website!
I'd like to inform you that one of the oldest Ginkgo biloba trees in Europe and the oldest Ginkgo biloba tree in Croatia is planted between 1771-1777 and it's located in Daruvar, in front of the Caste of Count Janković, both male and female specimens.
For more information, please visit our touristboard's www.visitdaruvar.hr/en/ginko-biloba.aspx.
Best wishes and sunny greetings from Croatia.

Ook in Heerde staat een ginko boom. Het goudgele blad is bijna gevallen.Wat een prachtige boom. Toch wil ik graag wat snoeien. Ik krijg graag advies wanneer dit kan.

1. Vanaf mijn studeerkamer kon ik net het topje van
de Gingko zien in de achtertuin van onze overbuurman, bioloog aan de Regentessestraat.
2. Winkelcentrum Vinkhuizen (zie vorig bericht)

Botergele bomen in november
2. Op het plein voor AH in het winkelcentrum Vinkhuizen zag ik veel Gingko bladeren. De volgende week zag ik pas dat ze kwamen aanwaaien van een rij bomen aan de andere kant van de parkeerplaats.

I'm a lifelong Texan who's never seen a ginkgo tree. My goodness, they're spectacular, and are so much in the hearts of folks who know them well. Now, to read your blog to fill in my obvious blanks. Heartiest thanks.

Wat een prachtige site! Bij mijn literatuurlessen Duits aan het VWO heb ik het gedicht van Goethe over de Gingko elk jaar weer behandeld met de afbeeldingen.

Dear Ms. Cor Kwant,
Several years ago, you advised me concering the transplanting of our gingko in our backyard. I followed your advice precisely, and our gingko has flourished thanks to your great help. Now; since we plan to move cross-country in the U.S. (from California to South Carolina), I would like to transport the ginkgo 3000 miles doing everything I can to protect it in the process and upon arrival. I realize that this is an ambitious project given the fact that the tree is approx. 8 years old, but I am extremely attached to the tree, which is the most beautiful gingko I have ever seen (I am biased). Please let me know your thoughts and, if it is possible, whether we should begin now to prune the roots as we would plan the transport in March or April before new growth. I have a photo of it which I would like to email to you, but I have not been able to find your email address to attach it.
Thank you very much.
