Why EGb number 761

"Among the foods traditionally prepared during the Lunar New Year, Jai seems the most complicated. It is also perhaps the most fascinating. Known alternatively as Vegetarian's Delight or Buddhist's Delight, the dish incorporates a wide selection of dried and fresh ingredients, all of which symbolize luck and success. Eaten on the first day of the Lunar New Year, which falls this year on Sunday, it should bring you good fortune in the weeks and months ahead."
In my guestbook someone wrote a message about an experience with deer and Ginkgo leaves. I'd like to share it with you:
USA, Coquille, OR
The deer won't eat the leaves!
It's 5' tall and only been in the ground a year. I'm hoping that it will survive the
wet climate. It's well drained. IF it survives, it should become a very popular tree,
as the deer leave it alone.
That in itself should should establish it as a 'tree to have'!

I would like to have an adress in Holland where I can buy seeds of a Gingko tree, or maybe little tree all ready in pot. I got this question of a friend of me, he is living in Croatia-in the city Pula.
