bamboo screen in planter

Posted: Yesterday at 20:50

A few questions for bamboo screening please;

What is the ideal (and minimal) width and depth of planters for bamboo?

How close can they be planted together to make a row of 2 metres?

to look something like this?

 Stunning and looks brand new. Did you visit Japan for inspiration ? or books and TV? 30 years ago it must have been very unusual for a garden, just wondered if you had a story behind it?

bOH not keen on screening backdrop or pergola but will work on him, when he's less busy.

Yes, of course, hot tub open for fellow gardeners!!!

Seen a bamboo in local garden centre called Fargesia rufa, or far geisha murielliae, what do you think? in a pot of course.

So for now, this is all the plants Ive got, but no room for seating!

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Moved huge chosia ternata, two year old dwarf flowering cherry and white camellia from the groundd to pots. Fingers crossed, I need to make way for a summer house and there is no room in the garden. However they have filled out the planned Japanese corner nicely. OH has not yet been persuaded to do any work to 'authenticate' it. So plants will have to be enough for now, no pergola, no screening etc. Time yet. 

Also been to garden centre to buy bamboo to make a bee house with son, some bedding plants for a hanging basket he wanted too.

Sounds like theres a musical theme here this morning / last night.

I dont usually sleep well either. Last night was an early night and just amazingly dropping off (I think if I go early I get to sleep better) but shook out of my near slumber by text telling me the news of the day re MIL whos in hospital, all was good. Then tossing and turning until 3 ish. 

Getting through the ironing before doing any gardening. Its a cold wind out there today. OH out on his bike before continuing the decking.
