Plant in any free draining soil damp soil preferably out of hot midday sun and sheltered from strong winds. Try adding some well rotted manure or organic compost to the planting hole this will help retain moisture in the soil and help your new plant settle in. Early spring feed with a liquid food high in nitrogen content, this will help promote new growth and give the plant a boost after the dormant period. In summer a slow release fertiliser is preferable. As with most plants, especially Bamboo always ensure the plant has an adequate water supply especially when planted in a container. This Bamboo requires no special treatment or requirements during the winter months.
