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?

If Bamboo can do this then I doubt weed membrane will stop it:

I have to lift a load of concrete blocks today, as Sasa Palmata has pushed them out of the way. I thought I had got rid of it, but there must have been a piece still in the ground when I put the blocks down. :roll:
Best regards

Good excuse for a ride on mower purchase :lol:

I don't suppose a small piece could be put in the post could it please? I'd be more than happy to cover all costs etc if so :D
