They're quite slowin the early years but easily growable in the east anglian climate and my not very good soil.
I grew some from seed and they were so slow to get above a foot tall I gave them away.
The one I have now was several years old when it was given to me and had been cut back.
The only problem I have with it is persuading it to be a tree. It wants to grow horizontally, which it does now by 12 or more inches a year. It's reluctant to make a vertical leading shoot in spite of my ties and stakes. I've accepted it as a gingko bush now
