Phyllostachys aureosulcata aureocaulis 29th May 2012. Every Bamboo in my garden is now shooting. This was the last to show.

My phyllostachys nigra has not "shot" for 2 years. I've fertilized it, fed it, muched it and watered it but still no new shoots - just straggly old ones from when it was first planted in 2010............what is the matter with it????

I've been away and some of my boos have been late this year.

I couldn't see any shoots on my chusquea gigantea or my chusquea culeou when I left on May 25th but by June 4th both had moved - pushing up culms of 7" and 5" respectively while I was away.

My Phyllostachys Aureosulcata 'Spectabilis' started to push up one new culm in April but it hasn't grown at all in the last 6 weeks.

Indocalamus Tessellatus - still awaiting movement here...........

Sasa Kurilensis 'Shimofuri' almost non-existent after getting too much leaf scorch last winter - just has tiny signs of new life.

Phyllostachys Heterocladas X 3 grown from seed 10 years ago - still clinging to life and started to moved mid-May. Will probably reach the grand height of 3ft again this year.

Phyllostachys Vivax not moving yet

Pseudosasa Japonica - ditto - not moving yet

Fargesia Murielae - so thick now that I can't see what is new and what isn't!

Phyllostachys Aurea not moving yet

Fargesia Robusta showing new culms shooting up - about 3 inches today.

Same here, it's looking very tatty, fresh leaves just emerging, but no sign of any new culms.

I'm well chuffed with my Nigra this year. Got about 6 clumps split from one bigger one about 2 yrs ago. All are sending up nice culms, the tallest about 8ft (ish). Number of culms varies between about 5 min and 10 max per clump.
