These bamboo plants interest me. Might plant some in my back yard. Do you know of anyone who planted them in our climate, and what resulted?

Thanks.

These bamboo look really interesting. I am interested in planting some in my backyard. Do you know of anyone who planted any in this climate and what resulted?

Thanks.

Getting to know your property, the plants you have and those you can grow, is a fulfilling endeavor. With most I am the steward of the land. I give them good soil biology and they do the rest. If I group them in cohesive plant communities, they respond with greater yields. If I encourage the micro-organisms (Fungus and bacteria) , the roots obsorb more nutrients making a pest and disease resistant plant. A stronger plant that gives us more organic food and takes less energy.
