Re: Such thing as a hardy evergreen bamboo for large pot?

Hello
thanks for all your replies. I have just seen a large metal trough on the www which would look great with bamboo in it.

Re: I want more plants.

Hello
I have a huge conifer out back on left hand side border, thinking of cutting that down and putting bamboo there instead. You should see my Ebay watching list, lol. Have about 50 plants on it, lol. I think buying and planting new plants is addictive icon_thumleft icon_thumleft

Such thing as a hardy evergreen bamboo for large pot?

Hello I do not know anything about bamboos. Is there a hardy bamboo that can be grown in a large pot or long trough which is evergreen and does not get too tall? Say no more than about 2 meters tall? Or can you cut back bamboo ok ? Do the cut down stems just shoot up again? Thanks for your replies C...

Re: My Garden photos

My garden is quite small too. The back garden looks large in my photos as I do not have much in it, large things. I used to have 20 trees in my back garden, but removed about 10 of them over the years as the garden felt tiny and so hemmed in. The left side border had 4 large conifers and took 3 of t...
