I have googled it and you are absolutely right, thank you.

I have a 2 year old Umbrella Bamboo in a large container. It was very happy last year throwing out new shoots and being as green as it should be.

I loosly wrapped it in thin fleece over winter. This year although still with new shoots it has some blackened leaves at the top and lots and lots of white, fluffy stuff, mostly around the leaf joints. I presume it is some sort of fungus, I am wondering that I should not have wrapped it up. 

I have cut out a couple of canes from the middle as i thought maybe there was not enough air circulating. I have also put some canes in to separate the canes.

Any other suggestions would be very welcome as I do love it, it is very much a running fingers through the branches ( how very Mills and Boon! ) plant but this is not a pleasant thing to do now...

Thank you.

I agree, so I will only sow named seeds. I live and learn, it is at least bright.

I have no idea where I bought it, so my research is useless really. However I find it quite amusing that the wildflower mix is almost 100% rape flowers and dill; very yellow and frondy green!

KEF- thanks  I will look that up.

Mattbeer, it is fab isn't it. It's called Estrella Voodoo Star. I always think it looks like a secret sweetie, I don't normally go for plants like that but it is gorgeous.

I love to look at all the photos.

Jewels of colour. KEF, lovely, I especially like the orange rose ( I can't enlarge so I hope it is a rose or I will look silly ! ).

I have found that it does work, but it may be placebo effect. I have munched of it for years and would always grow it. 

50 starlings!
