Transplanting Bamboo

When transplanting bamboo it’s always best to get the whole plant in one big root-ball. Of course we all know that sometimes this is impossible. Because the plant gets extremely large so sometimes we have to take the root-balls in manageable sizes. It’s just that the plants taken separate will have to start over and if left together they will grow much faster and continue to size up, and the others will have smaller canes the first year or two. But if you do have to separate take advantage of this time to spread them out and divide them to make your screen longer and wider. Just be prepared for a few years before you see any significant growth. Good luck and keep on growing.

Transplanting Bamboo Get a Good Size Root-ball

It’s been said that what one man can move takes 10 years to mature. What ten men can move takes 1 year to mature. So you should always try to get the largest root-ball that you can possibly handle for the best results. But also remember that if you put it in the truck you gotta get it out of the truck so get one that you can handle lifting twice. Transplanting Bamboo is very hard on your back so be careful.


Always dig your hole about twice the size of your root-ball so that the ground around it is easy for the rhizomes to travel in and they will establish much faster and stronger. By the end of the year you should be able to see the difference. Within 3 years you should see a big difference. But you will thank yourself if you took the largest size root-ball because you will be seeing extraordinary growth. We took these from a 4-5 year old grove with special made shovels and it was the easiest bamboo we have ever dug. Needless to say we will be purchasing some of the shovels real soon.

At Gabelmans Gardens it’s bamboo shooting season right now and the new shoots have broken ground. They will soon be 30 ft tall or better. My Moso shoots are about 6 inches tall already and growing fast. The giants are just starting to break through and I’m excited to see what’s going to come up this year it’s going be outrageous. This year Gabelmans Gardens will be adding many new species to our list of available bamboos. Many of the bamboos will be sizing up and be much larger than last years canes.

The Bigger The Better

For Best results with your instant bamboo privacy screen. The bigger the plant you start with the better it will grow. Bamboo stores massive amounts of energy in its culms and rhizomes. So the bigger the plant, the more energy it has stored away for next years growth. When bamboos are shooting the energy goes to the new shoots. Then after the shoots are finished growing the energy is going to growing its rhizomes or roots. I always compare it to solar panels and battery storage. The leaves of the instant bamboo privacy screen take in the sun(solar panels). The rhizomes are the batteries that store this energy. Saving it for later use when the plants shoot or grow rhizomes. The plants we have for sale right now will create an Instant Bamboo Privacy Screen.
