Planting Outdoors Spring

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Plant in spring so that the food reserves in the rhizome are used to produce a good flush of fresh canes in summer.

 

Planting in a container

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

New bamboo plants or divisions can be contained within a physical barrier to prevent them spreading through beds and borders. Ensure that bamboo plants in containers do not dry out in winter, since the foliage is prone to wind scorch. In very cold weather, insulate containers with bubble wrap or move them to frost-free conditions.
