I think you all know by now I over-fuss about some plants in my garden. I would say I am sorry about this, but I am not. One of the plants that has been a focus of such fuss and a cornerstone of my current and two previous gardens is my beloved ginkgo.
I have also top dressed the pot as the compost seems to have worn away/shrunk/been stolen by squirrels. Squirrels are digging in every pot I have at the moment so it seems reasonable they accept some responsibility.
I have been keeping the pot well watered through this very dry Spring and I am hopeful that the tree will continue to thrive. I am not even considering planting it back out into the garden this year, maybe I will at some point in the future, but I am enjoying being able to see it out of the kitchen window; just like I used to when it was newly bought all those years ago.
Meanwhile the other ginkgos, (one in the driveway and one in the back garden) are also leafing up. I will hesitate to mention the two ginkgo seedlings I recently bought to train as bonsai because you might suspect I am a) obsessed with ginkgos and b) obsessing about bonsai. You may think this, I could not possibly comment......
