October 2014: The Gingko trees are growing well especially with all the sunshine we have been having following the winter months when they lose their leaves but they now have their leaves again and are doing well.  They are still in their pots as it takes a few years before they are ready to plant in the ground.

The Gingko Biloba seedlings at Griffith Univ. are growing well. Now at about 16cm in height, they were recently transplanted from seed trays into individual pots. A planting ceremony is hoped for this August. Mar. 2013
