Castallonis bamboo flowering

Tatter Bamboos are capable of flowering at the same time all over the World! Clever or what. :wink:

I wonder how they communicate, Facebook, twitter, WhatsApp, or some other form of skulduggery. icon_scratch

Good morning all.

Hi, found this Forum when Googling whether Phormium flowers. First time I've seen it, thought it was from the Bamboo close to it. Can't wait for them to open, pretty excited.

Hi stu, I have various bamboo's for sale from time to time, and fargesia robusta campbell would be an easy one for you to start with...although ANY type of boo's need regular containment whether its a clumper or running type.

... planted 25 Trachycarpus Fortunei in my greenhouse today. I'll have a look at getting some Waggy's to go with them. I'm also looking to get some bamboo to mix in. What is the best (easiest and hardiest) to get?

However I doubt you would want to make hedge out of it I seem to remember they cost an arm and a leg and then...

Not sure if you mean deep pots or long troughs. :lol: Bamboos are shallow rooters. You might be better off burying a bamboo root barrier cheaply obtained online

Yes, they could get into next door, would it be ok in long pots? I’ve read that these would need to be really strong to prevent the root from breaking through
