Sallie, lovely as it is ,and I say this because I fell in love with it and foolishly  planted some in my garden.if you must /want bamboo  then buy a large ceramic pot,put a paving slab underneath, feed once a year and sit back and enjoy.     At the moment I am trying everything to remove my blunder and even bought a gas weed burner  ,which seems to be having some results.

Good luck. 

tree fern

Very good Tree fern liquid food available in garden centres.  I have been using it regularly for the last two years and my tree fern is looking good, this year I guess I will have four or five good new fronds very soon. Keep it moist , feed regularly as per instructions, and cover crown with old leaves in winter.   Good luck.

I have a bucket /bin in which I put water and all my fern leaves . I leave it for a few weeks till it has turned a very nice brown colour and I have been using that as a feed for the last few years and my tree fern seems to be doing well. I use a watering can spray most evenings.

Thank you Buddy I have been wondering what to do for ages as I do not really want to use weed killer . I will certainly get the kettle going in the autumn.

I had an ongoing war for almost a year ,every night and whenever I went out in the garden. I stood on then ,got them drunk ,salted them ,threw them and took them on long country walks. What a bloke I hear you all whisper . Yes . It worked and I proudly   say that I have almost no slug or snail problem.  The odd one now and again but nothing compared to invasion of before.  So on my opinion it takes bloody hard work over a long period of time ,but the reward is as my friend Tony says is GGGGRRREAT.
