Karen one day 12 years ago I was enthusiastically cutting stuff down and I cut our two ft Ginko in half!! so I left the root in the ground and planted the rest in our rose border very near to the path (where OH puts all his rose cuttings) noticed two years on it had started to grow!! dilemma...had planted it so close to the path that all the roots were under the path, so that is why it is kept as a standard, remarkable, no wonder they have survived so long.....

Goodness me! That is really aymayzing!! Well I never! Wellit looks superb there. What happened to the root though? Did it also regrow? They clearly grow faster than I had first thought, so I shall have to keep mine pruned, if it grows. It is looking very yellow right now. Still, if yours grew from a stump, there must be hope for it!

The planting around it is very beautiful btw!

The root rotted..... you could certainly make a standard out of yours, you are looking at the clematis and rose border, with pinks, eremurus and penstemons, sweet peas so it is not a rose border at all really!!
Have you notices on the right of the picture there is a Ginko saratoga, now that is interesting, just nipping over to Burncoose to see what's what.....

We have quite a large ginko hiding our ugly wall which I often give a mention to! I like yours and the plants that are all around it too.
