Anyone addicted?

..not really, perhaps those more involved in 'chit-chat' threads might be... I tend to look more at 'plants' topics and there aren't always too many of those... but it's a fast moving forum and I like it for that...and reasonably international too...lots of visitors, so I find it attractive in that way...

..saying that...and I've just posted on a 'potting shed' topic..lol...

..I find Gardenweb can also be problematic...however, I think there's more to life than a photo... best wishes...

Bamboo or tree screening? Suitable bamboos?

..my advice would be to think in terms of something a little smaller than what you have in mind... you don't really need huge trees or bamboo's for that situation... large deciduous and evergreen shrubs, with a small tree mixed in here and there...

..as for Bamboo's, if this is really what you want, I would only consider clump formers such as Phyllostachys aurea or nigra....and Fargesia robusta or rufa...  on no account plant Bissettii or any other type... also I would not plant any Bamboo closer to a fence boundary than 3 foot away, as I would need all round access to chop off spreading culms, as even clumpers do need a bit of control after 5 years or so...

..although control is easy for these types...

..incidentally, I have no idea what NDN means here... to me it would mean what American Indians often refer to themselves as...lol... NDN = Indian... or Native American...

..it's good to know that there is something out there that deals with it...thank you... although I have paid for security suite..which ought to.... but even so, this can always be used as an additional backup I think, as it doesn't conflict....working as it does in a different way...   I have read that the latest version 2.2, seems to be causing some people problems... and they prefer the earlier one....

..impulse buying again today..couldn't resist the much mentioned Calamagrostis acutiflora 'Karl Foerster'... got in in a 10 Litre pot for £12... so already a good size and it's absolutely gorgeous... I can't resist plants when they are just coming into flower like this, looking so young and fresh... bought an attractive container for it, for time being...

..Japan suffers tsunami's and Brazil has more lightening strikes than anywhere else in the world... not for me.... we have a great maritime climate here and usually proper seasons... I like that... wouldn't want to live, or garden anywhere else...

..as for seed sowing...well, we just dig a little hole and pop them in..
