Potting my bamboo

Posted: 10/11/2012 at 03:03

We have six of the Sasa bamboo's in very large pots as a screen standing on slabs,they are over seven feet tall, we started out with one in a pot, but it got so big we had to devide in half so if it is the sasa type and you plant in a pot in the ground you will have to remove it and devide it in half as in two years it will outgrow the pot,also in  dry wheather you will have to water it as it will get very dry in the pot even in the ground.

I agree with steephill,use teak oil first, i renovated an old victorian greenhouse use white plastic angle strip from diy stores and secure them with stainless staples putty will crack no matter what you treat it with and steel brads will rust in a couple of years, the white strip looks just like putty and lasts longer.

Tried these systems made my own to grow toms, much better to make a wooden tray line it with black polythene from a builders merchent or garden centre, use a soaker hose in the bottom of the tray and fill it with compost, then water as the plants need it, if this is in a greenhouse then very little if any will me needed in the winter, where you can grow winter lettuce.

I bought my bubblewrap from a an internet supplier I need 20 mtrs for my old 10x8. aluminium greenhouse, the problem is to get the right wdth, as most bubble wrap is 1mtr wide ,this is too wide and to avoid having to join it ineeds to be 27inches wide so to overlap the gla,zing bars, I fix mine with twist clips, it has lasted two years so far, you need strong double sided tape to fix the wrap to the opening vents
