When grown in a sunny location, the new culms have a spectacular red highlight in the spring and early summer.

Although Bamboo is a very versatile plant it grows best in well areated soil that is light in structure and rich in organic nutrients, ideally it should have good drainage but still retain some moisture. To promote growth and to help with keeping your plant looking lush and green feed with a general purpose organic liquid food during the growing season. If planted in a pot ensure an adequate water supply at all times. This plant need has no special requirements during the winter months.

Are they evergreen

Bamboo are an evergreen, perennial and a member of the grass family. Fast growing, they take up very little lateral space and yet they can reach fabulous heights extremely quickly, making bamboo a very cost effective choice when you need screening fast! They will naturally shed some leaf during the winter months.

How much water do they need

Like any other plant, bamboo needs three basic things in order to survive. Soil, sun and water. And as a gardener, one of your greatest responsibilities is to provide your bamboo with water. They are an incredibly thirsty plant and will require watering on a daily basis especially during hot periods. .

Will it need a root barrier

Fargesia are a non invasive clumping bamboo and will not require a root barrier. Phyllostachys, Aureosulcata and Pseudosasa are all ‘runners’ which can be either planted in a larger pot or with a root barrier in the ground.

How quickly will it grow

This really is dependent on watering sunshine and care. You would hope to achieve at least another third in growth during the growing season.

How far apart should I plant them

Space mature plants 1 metre apart to form a dense screen. Fast Growing varieties can be planted a little further apart if you don't mind waiting longer for them to fill in the gaps.

Unfortunately the height of these plants is to high for even pallet deliveries so they can only be delivered full height on one of our own vehicles this is postcode dependent unless by prior arrangement, as a general rule we personally deliver to almost all postcodes south of the nursery in Worcestershire and upto approximately Manchester and Leeds if heading north, other areas the plants will be delivered on a pallet, the delivery method will be confirmed in the checkout process.
