Pots....

Posted: 31/03/2016 at 08:03

The idea is to pot up into a container not too much bigger than it currently is in Shirley.   your 3.5 litre plant could go into a 5 litre pot

Yea,,definitely remove those "tea bags".  They are a nuisance.

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
