How to Care for Autumn Gold Ginkgo Tree
Be sure to read our planting instructions to ensure a healthy and happy plant for years to come!
How do I plant my Maidenhair Ginkgo Tree?
When planting your Ginkgo tree, dig a hole that is twice as wide, but no deeper than the container the tree came in. When it's time to plant, remove the tree from the pot and gently loosen the roots with your hands. Place your Ginkgo tree in the center of the hole and backfill with a mix of the original soil and topsoil/compost. This would also be a great time to apply a starter fertilizer. Give your tree a slow, deep water to encourage the roots to settle in their new home.
How Do I Water Ginkgo Autumn Gold?
As with all trees, Ginkgos need more watering after planting than they do once the tree has established. Maidenhair Trees like their soil moist without sitting in water. If the water is too wet for too long, your tree can suffer from root rot. Signs of this are if the tree begins to die from the center-out.
When should I Fertilize Ginkgo Trees?
Ginkgo bibloas enjoy a spring feeding of an all-purpose outdoor fertilizer. Fertilizing provides trees with additional but necessary nutrients. This is typically only necessary when the tree is young and establishing its roots. Once the tree is mature, they are extremely easy to care for and typically does not need fertilizer.
How Do I Mulch Ginkgo Autumn Gold?
We recommend adding a 2 to 3-inch layer of natural, organic mulch such as cedar around the base of the trunk. Be sure to leave a gap between the trunk and the mulch to reduce the risk of bacteria build-up.
