Bamboo Trees

I've got a biggish garden with some wild bits and bamboo is fine. It's not something I'd recommend for more cultivated areas.

We coppice ours from time to time but it does mean a few nutless years. I don't think we'd do them all in one year again

If you can get at the base you could remove the older stems, I can see one in each, right to the base.

They take any amount of hacking about without complaint

Or a scented rose under the bedroom window

Can any holly be made into a standard?

Keep the most shapely stem and see if you can get it upright. Cut the other 2 back to base. Cut any low branches off the chosen one, right back to trunk.  don't cut the leader back til it reaches the height required. 

I've been trying to shape one of mine. Not to a standard but a sort of cone. It's taking a very long time to fill out

I'd have wires or trellis and grow something that didn't adhere to the wall. That would also dictate how far up it could go. It would give you a far wider choice, roses, clematis, jasmine and all sorts of goodies.


Allotment shed can anyone help!?!

That's good Dove. Merky is in various threads so had to ignore.

Best not to hear it. There's nothing you can do

But I don't sleep in the room under chimney when it's really bad. 

I still don't sleep much though
