Bamboo shooting dates 2012

Rather than adding to the autumn shooting thread I thought I would start this one.
If you like; post your species + shooting date here.

Fargesia robusta: March 20th (ish)

Chusquea gigantea March 30th icon_cheers

Ha, this is one thread that will niggle me because I know that my bamboos are more than likely to come in last place :P

Fargesia robusta: March 28th

Fargesia scabrida: March 14th (they haven't moved since then though :()

Fargesia rufa: March 22nd

My Phyllostachys bissetti, nigra and aureosulcatus, Semiarundinaria fastuosa, Borinda maccleurana and Pseudosasa japonica are all still sleeping :zzzz!: ;)
