All About Bamboo
Information Sheet
Bamboo is a versatile and important part of the economy and culture in many
countries. Here at Wide World Importers, we import a variety of home décor
products made from bamboo. But if you want to add a tropical flair to your
garden as well as in your home, try planting one or several of the many
varieties of bamboo used for landscaping.
There are two different categories of bamboo plants to consider, depending
on the look you want to achieve and the amount of maintenance you're
prepared to do: running and clumping. The running varieties send out
underground runners which can show up far from the parent plant. The
underground runners can be easily contained either by using the trench-andbarrier method described below. Runners are ideal for hedges or screens.
Clumping bamboos have very short root systems, expanding no more than a
few inches per year. They are less cold-hardy than runners, but make
excellent specimen plants.

Moving to a New Home
Bamboo plants grow best in a moderately acidic loamy soil. Bamboo is
natively a forest plant, and grows best when mulch is kept over the roots and
rhizomes. Grass makes a good mulch, because it's high in nitrogen and silica,
as do chipped trees, bark, and straw. Bamboo can be planted any time of the
year in areas with mild climates. A newly planted bamboo requires frequent
and liberal watering, twice a week or more often during hot or windy weather.
To control spread of any of the running bamboo varieties, dig a trench that is
at least 30 inches wide and 30 inches deep around the area that you want
the newly planted bamboo to occupy. Line the trench with a polyethylene
bamboo barrier, and fill the lined trench with gravel. Tightly compact the soil
next to the barrier to discourage deep rhizome growth.

Staying Healthy
Do not rake or sweep the bamboo leaves from under the plant, as they
provide an effective mulch to keep the soil soft and moist.
If you dig a trench to control running bamboo varieties, examine the trench
each fall to determine whether any rhizomes have tried to cross it. If so, cut
them off.
Stake tall and slender bamboos.
In the spring, excessive yellowing of the leaves and leaf drop are normal for
the growth cycle.

Keeping Bugs at Bay
Bamboo mites, not to be confused with spider mites, cause stippling with
yellowish centers throughout the leaf of the plant. With magnification, you
can see the webbing and the mites themselves on the underside of the
leaves, ...
