Absolutely love to get in the garden when I can. Love birds, fish and plants. I live in the heart of Sydney suburbia on an average block of land

@lesliecole49 this one is very large, at the moment it is about 12 metres high and 2.5 metres wide. It's a slow grower so it's manageable

@Dragon_Warrior there are many varieties of all sizes and colors I'm sure there would be one suitable for your situation 😊

A friend of mine has, I think it's a chinese bamboo by her creek. Some of them are nearly 10 inches (25cm) around and you have to go at it with an axe if you want a piece of root to start. I didn't want any but another friend did and we gave up! Too much work!
