The Ginkgo Biloba is a living testament to the Earth's ancient history and a timeless addition to your garden. This deciduous tree, also known as the Ginkgo or Maidenhair tree, is celebrated for its unique fan-shaped leaves that turn a dazzling golden-yellow in the fall, creating a breathtaking display of autumn colours.

With a remarkable history dating back over 270 million years, Ginkgo Biloba is often referred to as a "living fossil" due to its enduring presence and virtually unchanged characteristics. Beyond its ornamental value, this tree has been recognised for its potential health benefits, with its leaves used in traditional herbal medicine and dietary supplements for cognitive and circulatory support.

Ginkgo Biloba is highly adaptable and thrives in urban environments, making it an ideal choice for city streets and public spaces. It can withstand pollution, drought, and various soil conditions. This tree also holds cultural significance, particularly in Asia, where it symbolises longevity, resilience, and hope.

With its striking beauty, rich history, and potential health benefits, Ginkgo Biloba is more than just a tree; it's a living connection to the past and a captivating addition to your garden, offering both visual appeal and a touch of natural and cultural depth.
