Ginkgo and persimmon seeds have germinated and seem to be adapting to their new Austrian home.
The Hiroshima Botanical Garden sent ginkgo, hackberry, persimmon, and jujube seeds, which arrived in Klagenfurt safely and were planted immediately.
Tibet Center Austria
Three years after a batch of Hibaku seeds arrived in Austria, the first Gingko sapling therein has been planted at the Tibet Center Austria in Huettenberg, Carinthia. At a ceremony filled with peace and friendship, the planting ceremony was the highlight event marking the birthday of H.H. Dalai Lama on 6 July. Gesche Tenzin Dhargye, Master of the Tibet Center, prayed for the Gingko along with Mayor of the town, Josef Ofner as the first A-bombed tree was being planted in Austrian soil.
