Looks great! Were there any examples of timber bamboos growing well so far north?

The best in terms of thick culms would be the Ph Vivax Aureocaulis - which is the close up above. thickest were 3 ins +

that stand was around 15 years old.

there were over 100 species spread over 3 sites. lakeside,woodland and a garden closer to the house with loads of excellent Borindas, some of which haven't even been given a name yet.
