Bamboo Fargesia can be planted in any free draining soil damp soil preferably out of hot midday sun (in warmer areas of the UK ) and sheltered from strong winds. In early spring feed with a liquid food with a high 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.
