European pharm. companies have been manufacturing a drug used for memory retention, etc. The drug is isolated from Ginkgo leaves. I read an article in the American Nurseryman a few years ago profiling a supplier of the leaves. I believe the supplier was from Georgia and shipped the raw material to France. Do you have any information on the manufacturers or suppliers of the leaves? I would like to be a potential supplier of the raw material.
