I don't have a clue what I'm doing, but I bought a house from someone who obviously loved the garden. Any advice / tips / help gratefully received :)

@odnny & @ukjohnny - turns out it's a Maidenhair Tree. Not sure if I'm going to need to move it due to the proximity to the fence? Any thoughts?

A Ginkgo...the 'living fossil'...fossil of this plant gave been dated to 270 million years ago...and its supposed to have medicinal properties...if you decide to move it ...winter time is best...moving a plant this time of year is always risky...

@benjitzers They are not very fast growing, should be OK there for a year. Can get very tall eventually

Thanks @ukjohnny & @odnny I'll wait until it's dropped its leaves before I move it 👍
