Ginkgo Bilobo, is a fascinating tree and unbelievably found in fossils dating back 270 Million Years! It is one of the worlds oldest living tree species and I just so happen to have one growing in my back garden. Around this time of year the leaves offer a wonderful cascade of golden glow, with a resemblance to the maiden hair fern, hence the Ginkgo common name 'Maidenhair Tree'.
