Agree with Dave.......double edged sword 

usually bamboos do die after flowering .....perhaps consider growimg something else 

Golden Bamboo

Ang1, my advice is to take them back to Homebase. they are not suitable for gardens. just say they are "not fit for purpose" (on the basis they invade) 

your golden bamboo is a rampant spreader....no doubt some will claim otherwise.  ironically, bamboos are not great in pots.

I had P. Aureus here and in one season I had to dig them out (had 2) as well as digging out plants growing around them.  Roots went deep and were surfacing 2 metres away. 

Sorry Ang1

adding to the garden theme on this thread, I potted on, planted out, mulched and almost cut the grass.......will do that tomorrow. A delivery of young plants.....ordered for a friend.....arrived in pretty poor state.  Anyway,  being replaced and can keep what I have.  

Trip to local nursery tomorrow....not for me but no doubt something will tempt me

I have that variety too Obelixx.  Later than the others and very vigorous.  Dont ever remember buying it but I divide every year making new large flowering clumps

Photinias do not move well, in my experience. 

just about time to move it though.  All the sensible things like diggng as big a rootball as possible and watering it in well.  Better too to have the recipient hole prepared before digging up your plant.  Mix in compost and granular fertiliser too.  

Photinias are not really good pot plants....in the ground for sure Charlotte m 

Spirea Help!!

Jason, always a shock to the system when any plant is pruned however your pink spirea should recover.  I prune mine annually...havent checked yet but I would expect to see the new shoots just emerging.  Early here though.

i really dont think you have killed your plant...I have cut them quite drastically and they recover.

still early .......wait awhile.  Let us know when you see it growing
