ting diao - Canada: Ginkgo from 4 years ago!


Hi Hiroshi-san,

It's unfortunate to hear from you that the check didn't get through. After four years, I think your bank is cautious to cash it or just pure lazy to clear a small amount. I don't complain with the quality of the seeds you've sent, but only one sprouted out of four. That made one special. That a hibaku will always stand to survive. I am proud to own one and to this day, my gingko is growing healthy. It's been 3 exciting seasons that its leaves turned yellow and fell every late winters. I always see to it that somebody takes care of it when I went for long vacations, because one time it almost died. But then again, it stood to be a hibaku!

Hitomi Iwasaki: Sendan growing


Do you see?  It even has a baby at the bottom.  This is a second one.  I gave away the first one to one of our colleagues here to take home.  I am being a such a good mom.
