    Help with my 2 baby Ginkgos

    Hi, I just have a few questions about my Ginkgo.

    First, I have already planted one, I followed the planting instructions on the tag, full sun, ect. I am concerned because it is now losing it's color in the leaves. They have paled to a light, light, green color some even to a yellowish green color. Is this stress? I have been deep watering it since it has been planted, about once a week for an hour or longer.


    Second question. I have my second Ginkgo still in it's pot (5 gallon) we were just wanting to know if the area a 9' 7"x 13' dirty area would be fine for it. Our house sits along two sides of the area and then a sidewalk. It is the dirt area in front of my kitchen window. Would it's roots cause problems? I have heard that they are used for sidewalk trees so that sugessts to me that they run deep roots?
    Thank you for your help in this!

    Not sure whether your tree is stressed or not. Any chance of posting a picture of it? The resident experts might have an opinion after seeing photos.

    There are several ginkgoes planted along the main street in my home town. Not sure how old they are (the trunks on most look to be around one foot in diameter). They are growing out of small cut-outs in the sidewalks, and there is absolutely no sign of damage or heaving anywhere around them.

    That being said, I'd still get it as far away from the house as possible within the area you intend to plant to avoid roots vs. foundation problems.
