Important Information

Bamboo will tolerate all soil types but may take longer to establish in very heavy clay.

When planting bamboo do not disturb the root ball and do not plant deeper than it is potted. Treat new bamboo as you would any other new plant until established. Once it is established it will be extremely water wise and almost totally self-sufficient.

Larger varieties can be grown in pots that will restrict their overall height, if you do not have the space to plant them in the ground.

If you have the space but do not want the height, bamboo can be pruned to any height and will not re-shoot from the cut. Pruning an established tree should be done once a year, as clumping varieties shoot mid to late summer and spreading varieties shoot from mid to late spring. This will give the bamboo ample time to build up energy and release the following season.

Every bamboo species we sell has been grown in Victoria and will cope with all weather conditions and temperatures this state can endure.
