The warning is clear....don't plant bamboo unless you are sure it is a clump former. Difficult if not impossible to eradicate a running bamboo
tracing a runner is not practical...it will have taken many detours en route.
See original post
It depends on where it's growing as to whether or not it's practical to trace or not. On mine the runners had grown under the lawn, so it was a case of tracing the runner from the parent plant and following each 'detour'. It is time consuming and the lawn takes a bit of a beating, but so far I've only seen evidence of 2 small sections of runner I'd missed. That's 2 years on from removing them.
