Bamboo Screen / Hedge

I'm with Karl on this one, I have used concrete slabs cemented together but they still get through. I only have one that doesn't run which is a blue one but I cant remember which one! Sorry.

... a few buying and selling groups on Facebook which are very active. Now is probably not the best time to get lots of things but hardy plants like bamboo, trachycarpus, fatsia etc can be planted out And should establish well before winter arrives.

New from Rotherham

Welcome. Good hardy plants to give you a backbone and an evergreen one at that are Trachycarpus, bamboo (avoid Sasa and none clump forming varieties), fatsia, phormium and ground ferns. Many other less hardy plants will survive with some protection in an average UK winter ...
