Bamboo Plant Profile and Growing Hints

Phyllostachys pubescent, Phyllostachys aura and Phyllostachys nigra and despite what is said about root barriers we suggest only growing these in pots or containers.
Landscaping and other uses for Bamboo
|So if you really need to grow a running bamboo then either be prepared for it to eventually do what it does best, run, or plant it in a container. Methods such as removal of new shoots and root pruning are really not effective in the long term. Root barriers will work if you are prepared to put one in that is 1m deep, however even these can break down and bamboo runners have a way of finding any gap that appears, and even the best root barrier can break down over time.
So if you must grow running bamboo, try a planter box.

Bamboo likes a well drained soil, but plenty of water, so when planting out make sure that you water in well and then water regularly until established. Applying fertiliser will stimulate growth and a fertiliser with a high nitrogen percentage (look for N.P.K on the packaging) will be useful once the plants have had time to settle in.
