dear gardeners all....has anyone experience growing a gingko tree in a
pot?..i have a 'seedling' with a single stem about 2 feet high and would
like to grow it on my deck...i am in the pacific north west near vancouver
canada...my concerns are space the roots prefer and will it stand the
winter temps with roots above ground?

I have some variegated Ginkos from Japan, which have been growing in
containers for twenty years. If i ever find a place i like well enough
i plan to stay there, i will plant them in the ground. no doubt they
would be bigger in the ground, but they do JUST FINE in the
I am also growing some plain Ginkgos as grafting stock for the
variegated budwood. they have been in containers for about five years.
So i would have to say they do awfully well as containerized trees.
Hermine, where oh where did you buy the variegated ginkgo? Do you have any
rooted seedlings I can trade for or buy? I would love to have one of those.
Need a good, cheap, knowledge expanding present for a friend?
I grow Ginkos Crates 24" square x 21" deep. Have 8-10' tall 1 1/2"
calipher. Do very well. Crate is big enough volume for moisture and
doesn't freeze up in Zone 6. We also use the HD plastic crates for
almost every other kind of larger tree. see our website for pics under
