Can I prune a Ginko Tree?

Posted: 10/07/2013 at 12:06

Please don't try to grow it in a pot.  Plant it in the soil or if you haven't enough room, buy one for  the council for a park or give one to a friend who will appreciate it.  They grow slowly, but they do eventually reach 100ft.

They are very rewarding and attractive, but don't stunt a tree to help you through a bad time!

Cyantist, pesticides kill pests, not plants!  You need a herbicide. But it is not the solution I would use.

As this is such a nice shrub, couldn't you cut back the branches that are in the way?  Cut them back to the main stem.

Garjobo, was it you that posted a series of photos on YouTube?  If it was, several posters wondered if you had constructed the greenhouse correctly.  If it wasn't I apologise!!

If there are lips in the top rail the glass usually has to slot in so that water cannot get in.  Is it upside down?

Depending on the rootstock it may be the tree needs a support throughout its life.  You may need to replace the strap, but obviously not with one that harms the tree.

our bitch is ruining the lawn .... any ideas?

Depending on her age, perhaps you can train her to wee on a gravel patch. Or put her on a lead when she goes out, so she goes where you want her to.

I think the air is too dry for them.  Do you spray the leaves with water?

Never seen one less like a sweet chestnut or horse chestnut. Is it a lime?

Gabions, retaining wall any other options please?

I think you are asking too much of this messageboard.  Sounds like you need some serious engineering help with good retaining walls.

They sell the opened out ones in the supermarkets now.  They don't miss a trick, do they!

I think they need to be planted out in the garden.
