    Seeing 3 years ago in the sale of ginkgo bicarbonate seeds, could not resist, bought for the sake of interest, although she had no idea what it was.
    It turns out that ginkgo grew on earth during the era of dinosaurs. This tree is considered sacred in China and Japan, and in Chinese it means "silver nut". In these countries, there are many legends associated with ginkgo.
    Ginkgo suffers short-term frosts up to -30 °. His leaves, like a fan, are green in the summer, and in the autumn they are golden yellow. The plant, whether it is a tree or a bush, is very beautiful and also has medicinal properties.
    Having learned all this, I decided to grow ginkgo from the purchased seed seeds. They did not need stratification, so in February they planted it immediately on seedlings, slightly sawing the seeds with a regular file for faster germination. It was poured into a bowl of fertile substrate, on top - wet sand to a height of 1,5 cm. The seeds were pressed halfway directly into it. She covered them with a film, and a month later shoots appeared.
    In early June, landed them in a summer cottage in a sunny place, making a drainage of sand in the pit. At the end of August I pruned the tops of the branches, then covered it with a “hut” made of spruce branches, and a non-woven material on top. With age, the winter hardiness of ginkgo increases, but I will continue to cover them for the winter and form them in the form of a bush. Although you can grow a plant in a pot, iu and before the cold take it to winter on a loggia.

    Trees are like people: some coexist well, others dislike each other. And since gardeners cannot change this, it remains for them to adapt to the customs of their green pets.
    Probably the most common tree in country gardens is an apple tree. She feels good next to cherries, plums, pears and quinces. But apricot, walnut, peach and viburnum are not the best company for her.
    Pear likes to coexist with apple and red ashberry-Next to the cherry, plum, currant and kalina plant it is not worth it.
    Cherry "sympathizes" with apple, persimmon and grapes, and with apricots "is not friendly". Plum easily get along with the apple tree, but not with a pear or peach.
    Apricot will grow well in the company of quince. Planting it next to a peach, cherry, cherry and apple trees is undesirable.
    The best environment for cherries is peach and grapes, but blackcurrant, pear and apricot are not the best.
    It is advisable to adjoin the grape with quince, apricot, pear and walnut, but not worth it - with cherries, cherries, apple trees, hazelnuts and peaches.
    Respect the "neighbor" preferences of trees, and they respect you with good harvests.
