Sir: Your correspondent in her letter on ginkgo trees has omitted to mention the distinctive webbed-foot shaped leaves and opportunities to view specimens.

May I recommend the young ginkgo in the Japanese Garden at Compton Acres, Poole, Dorset - sight of which resulted in my garden purchase. However, the best I have seen are the full-size ginkgos, complete with adult weeping habit, near the pedestrian underpass from the park at the north end of the Konigsallee, Dusseldorf, West Germany.

Yours faithfully,


Tintinhull, Somerset
