Thanks for that. I'll have a go tomorrow. I'll start to thin out first, taking out the spindly shoots and see what's left, and then take out the tallest ones that overhang into neighbours garden.
Thanks FairyGirl - the trough is at the side of the patio that is at the end of the side passage to house. It a bit of a wind tunnel up the side passage so I put the bamboo in a trough to stop the window rushing into the garden. The bamboo takes a good beating from the wind but it does stand up to it - guess that's why it's called Robusta!
