Re: In a nut shell--Today's event at the nursery.

Very ancient tree, bridging the angiosperms and gymnosperms. Known only through fossils until discovered growing in a Chinese temple garden early in the last century. Has never been found growing in the wild. Goes through a long awkward "adolescence" before coming into its glory as a mature tree. Clear yellow fall color, and the leaves tend to drop at the same time. Ginkgo seeds are a real delicacy in Asia, but you have to deal with the smelly soft part to get at them. Went to Colonial Williamsburg during ginkgo fruiting season one year...interesting.

Was also  curious about going back to get a ginkos (sp?)..looked nice,
but couldn't  remember the conversation here about it.

I don't remember the conversation, either, but I just love ginkgoes. They
deer don't eat them, and they provide beautiful fall color. I have two -- one
from an organic nursery and one I grew from the seed of one over my aunt's
grave. Since one or both could be female I might be in for a real experience
in about 20 years. <LOL>
