Bamboo Grown In Pots and Containers
Most species of bamboo can be grown in pots or containers. However, care and maintenance is much more involved. Because the growing area in containers is much smaller, the bamboo will get root bound much quicker. The restricted root space also dehyrdrates the roots quicker. Because of this, bamboo in pots should be divided and repotted every couple of years.
Bamboo for Privacy, a Follow-up
Early in February I shot a few pictures of this garden and promised a follow-up once it was in Summer mode. Well it’s only late April but there are already signs of the owners taking the public space (driveway) and making it private, all they needed was a little Bamboo! Happy heathy Bamboo... Love the knobby canes… A few more pictures of this garden… Same day, same walk, different house. I suddenly felt that I’d ended up in the middle of some strange experiment, an alien landing pad maybe…
