Bamboo how does it behave when it hits a wall/barrier?

What does Fergesia bamboo do when it hits a wall/barrier

Will it still try and force a culm up against it, or focus its growth on the other x3 sides where it can continue to expand?


My Fergasia campbell hedge has rocketed and already touching the wall :lol:

Can bamboo runners harm other plants?

I have ferns and a Trachycarpus quite close to a Vivax bamboo, I'm just wondering is there any way that the bamboo's runners could badly do damage to them?

Sorry if it seems like a dumb question but I have been wondering what the effects could be of bamboo runners going past Palms.

Will Bamboo push through weed suppressor?

Will Bamboo push through weed suppressor?

I ask because most of my garden is covered with weed suppressor then a layer of slate chippings. Would Vivax and Nigra bamboo be able to push through this or do I need to clear out the area where I want them to spread?
