Large 12 Litre Bamboo Pseudosasa Japonica 120/140cm: This is one of the most widespread and common Bamboo in the country and easily recognisable, probably in many of the gardens surrounding your home. Although an outdoor Bamboo it can if you desire be grown indoors, however it is not what we would personally recommend. The long green leaves have a size range of between 12cm and 30cm by approximately 7cm wide, much larger than the leaves of other similar hardy Bamboo. Fully winter hardy to -25 so a good choice for the colder areas of the uk. Pseudosasa Japonica or Arrow Bamboo is an extremely tough and versatile plant, it can be planted in shade right through to full sun in a south facing garden and unlike some other Bamboo is extremely tolerant of wind, it makes a good choice for positions in the garden where most other plants have failed. It can, if you wish to restrict height, be pruned to almost any height we have actually seen in some cases where it has been shaped to create a dense rigid square hedge.

What to expect: Your plant will arrive with an actual height of approximately 120/140cm. Planted in a 12 litre/30cm pot, nice bushy plants.

Planting Position: Can be planted almost anywhere in the garden in any part of the uk from full sun through to partial shade.

Soil: Any free draining damp soil, humus rich is the perfect choice, but Sasa Japonica Is an extremely versatile Bamboo.

Suitable for container planting: Yes ideal for container and ground planting, if container planting is preferred keep in mind the plant will need re potting approximately every 2 years.

Eventual height and spread: Upto 6 metres with a 15-20 metre spread, to restrict the spread we recommend planting in a non-perishable root barrier.

. 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.
