Ginkgo Tree
Q.

Gingko biloba tree

Zone Knoxville, TN Zone 7 | Anonymous added on June 21, 2018 | Answered

Small, newly planted gingko tree - leaves are pale green to yellowing and beginning to drop. It is awful red clay soil so I mixed top soil with the clay & used starter fertilizer at the time the tree was planted (about 6 wks ago). I think it is too early for the fall color change but sure don't know whats going on. I planted a 2nd gingko about 10' away & it seems to be doing fine. We've had regular rainfall & the summer hasn't been too hot so far. I have watered both trees equally when I thought it was needed. I need all the advice/help you can give as this tree is much to expensive to let die! Thanks.
