Happy with Purchase So Far
This is my first tree ordered from FGT, and I am very happy with the total experience. I'm surprised at how fast this little tree has took off after waking up from dormancy. I live in zone 9 (North Florida). I received my tree in late December, and planted it in late January. Within a few weeks it began leafing out (we've had a mild winter this year). As of today, it's grown approximately 6 inches. My impression of Ginkgos was that they were slow growers... while I'm new to the tree world, this seems like a pretty fast growth rate for a Ginkgo, so I'm pleasantly surprised. I will note that I have planted mine in a sunny location (gets approximately 6-8 hrs a day currently, and will get more in the summer), and have to water it every other day already. The new, fresh growth will droop in the Florida sun, but watering and/or the afternoon shade will perk it right back up. The tree looks very healthy, and we're very pleased with it so far. It was a bit of a gamble buying this tree living in Florida and it being a brand new cultivar, but so far it's doing well and we're pleased.
Just after it started leafing out.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Goldspire™ Ginkgo


Goldspire™ Ginkgo  Planting Diretions

The Goldspire Ginkgo tree (Ginkgo Biloba ‘Goldspire’) is a lovely addition to any landscape, large or small. This widely adaptable tree can grow in almost any condition or climate, withstanding cold all the way down to -20 degrees. They’re also heat and drought tolerant as well. Goldspires are typically grown in USDA growing zones 4-9 and are very adaptable to any soil type. Goldspire ginkgos can be used in home landscapes, parking lots, or city streets due to their compact size of 15 feet tall and only 5-6 feet wide. The fan shaped leaves turn from a deep green in the summer to a golden fall color that’s a show stopper and certainly will attract attention to your landscape. This particular variety is a male, so no worries about messy clean up or unpleasant odors!

Location: Goldspire ginkgo is a full sun tree that can tolerate partial shade in warmer climates. In cooler climates they need 6 or more hours of sun for the best performance and fall color. These trees prefer well draining soil but can take more moisture than some other varieties. They can also tolerate some salinity in the air as well as the soil. They do not need much space to fill out, so even compact areas are suitable for this tree.

Planting directions: Once you find your ideal location, it’s time to start planting.

1) Dig your hole twice as wide and just as deep as the container that it arrived in.
2) Remove your plant from the container and lightly comb the root ball with your hands to free up the roots a bit.
3) Place your plant in the center of the hole, making sure that it is straight.
4) Backfill the hole with a mixture of 60% native soil and 40% compost or garden soil to help enrich the soil. Tamp the soil as you go to remove air pockets.
5) Water well when done so that the roots are moist, but not saturated and to fully settle the soil.
6) Mulch the area well (2-3 inches thick) to help the conserve moisture and regulate temperature. This will also keep weeds and grasses at bay.

Watering: Goldspire ginkgos will need regular watering to establish a healthy root system. If you’re in a warm climate, they will need water about every 2 days during the summer months and every 3-4 days in cooler climates. These trees do not like to be saturated for any period of time, but don’t care for their roots to dry more than 1-2 inches down before being watered again. Once the tree is established, they will only need water during times of drought, always keep the root area protected with mulch to help the tree to conserve water. Ginkgo trees are easily adaptable to many conditions and therefore can be easily overwatered. Always check the soil for drainage, and ensure that the area is drying out some before you water again.

Pruning: Once these plants are well established, they need little pruning to maintain their shape. During the first 3-4 years they will need to be lightly sheared in the early spring to help them form the dense branching that is characteristic of them.

Fertilizing: Ginkgo trees do not need much fertilization once established. To give the tree a boost during the first few growing seasons, fertilize it in the early spring with a slow release fertilizer, such as a 10-5-5 or a 10-10-10 formula. Be careful not to over fertilize as these trees don’t need much fertilization. They will not need to be fertilized more than once per season.

I always liked the look of a Ginkgo leaf - and this columnar/pyramid shape will allow for an eye catching feature in my front yard. I just hope it will get enough sun!

Kay W on Mar 28, 2017
I remember anticipating the fall each year while in elementary school, as there was a beautiful ginkgo on the street corner that seemed like it would turn golden yellow overnight. I've always wanted to try one but didn't have the space for the traditional sized ginkgo. This size will be perfect for the street corner of my lawn.

The type of tree will be perfect for the location. Looks very Nice.

We have had Ginkgo trees before, and we really love them. The golden color make these particular Ginkgo trees especially appealing.
Siegfried M on Apr 6, 2016
I have always wanted one because I worked in an office and their landscape had at least a dozen of these trees planted. I loved the shape of the leave, it's texture and the bright fall yellow color. They just fascinated me and when I saw them on your web site I just had to have it. Thank you so much. Lavada Chadwell

what is the recommended spacing between trees?
Richard P on Apr 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It says they can grow 6 feet wide thus recommended spacing is 6-8 feet. ??
IS THIS GINKGO TREE DEER RESISTENT ?
GARRETT B on Nov 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They are rarely damaged by deer.
We live in south east Missouri can we grow this kind of tree?
Pam C on Jun 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello Pam. Yes, I think the Goldspire will do quite well in South East Missouri. Ginkgo varietals are a very hardy lot, and can survive prolonged periods of heat and drought. The first couple of growing seasons Goldspire will require ample water and well drained soil. After this, nature will take its course and this tree will 'wow' you--particularly during the fall seasons when the leaves turn bright yellow for a month or so before falling. Make certain you plant the Goldspire where it will get ample sunshine throughout the day(Ginkgo trees can actually bend and grow toward sunlight!), and make certain you plant it in an area where it has ample room to grow. I believe it's ultimate shape will be narrow and pyramidal, but I would allow at least 5-6 feet of spacing between one tree and the next. I hope this helps! Mark
Do these Goldspire trees have the balls that drop and smell bad?
Nicole S on Jun 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, we do not carry the female variety that smells bad.
I am in zone 9 (North East Florida). I just planted my Goldspire last month. When do I make the first application of fertilizer? Or should we not fertilize these trees?
Brian C on Feb 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There is no need to add fertilizer as Ginkgo Trees will thrive with the nutrients available in the soil. If desired, you can fertilize with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in the spring.
How fast do these trees grow per year right after planting in the ground?
Minnesota
Kellie on Jan 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Once established they can grow 12-14" per year.
Does this tree attract bees ?
Peter K on Feb 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: My own little Ginkgo tree is growing slowly, but I can relate to you that Ginkgo trees do not attract bees. GInkgo trees and shrubs are non-flowering, therefore there is no reward for a bee to visit this species. There is no denying the sheer beauty of Ginkgo trees, but if you are looking for a tree that attracts bees I highly recommend any of the flowering maple varietals (abutilon spp.).
I have a 16" deep by 17 feet wide space between my short fence and the neighbor's concrete pad where they store their trailer. Could this tree work there so I can't see their house?
Elle Y on Nov 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I used four along a property line to block a camper he parks along the fence....they are coming in nicely already...should work great!
Are they deer resistant?
Brownie on Jan 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Brownie
I use a deer repellent because I do have a deer problem and in the winter the deer will eat and browse on about anything that has the bud or last year's growth on it so because I use a repellent I don't know for sure but I'm quite confident that they would chew on my ginkgos they are very nice looking tree and I do what I need to do to protect them
Will this tree grow in zone 9 while in direct sunlight all day?
Carol W on Nov 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Ours defoliated in summer sun. We are bordered 8b / 9a in North Florida (Jacksonville). It got 6 to 8 hrs of sun daily, and full afternoon sun. We have sandy loam soil. Ours really took off in Spring and looked great until that summer sun hit. We ended up putting it back in a pot on our back porch facing East. It now only gets filtered morning sun now and has leafed out this Spring already and appears to look ok so far. So from my experience, I wouldn’t recommend afternoon sun.
Do these trees drop leaves?
Gordon G on Jun 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes...but very late in season...at least in my experience
