Spot on Fairy.
there must be a reason why so many of us advise STRONGLY not to grow bamboo lovegardens. Unless you know for sure what sort of bamboo you have do NOT plant it.
It is very irresponsible for people to recommend bamboos willy nilly. It is not a simple matter to simply dig up bamboo if .....when...it starts to pop up everywhere. It is a losing battle with consequences
on the forum today another invasive plant...rhus typhina....is causing problems yet there are those singing its praises.
If you must grow bamboo go to a speciaist grower and enquire fully. Do your own research.
