Plant Care & Advice

When planting Bamboo's, use a sunken root barrier to prevent the Bamboo invading other areas of the garden with its runners. I would need to be watered regularly during dry periods! In spring, remove any weak, dead, damaged or spindly canes, cutting them to ground level with secateurs or loppers. To show off plants to their best, remove some of the foliage from the bottom of the canes. Cut them back with secateurs, pruning as close to the main cane as possible to leave a smooth finish.
