Bamboo Why Not?

Bamboo is one of the most widely used plants on the planet today. Bamboo is responsible for thousands and thousands of products on the supermarket shelves today. And you don’t want to be a big part of that. Well I certainly want some of that action. It’s the whole reason I started doing this many years ago. Bamboo actually supplies me with many of the things I use around the house and I think of more every day. Not to mention the products I build and sell which is again growing every day.

The Bamboo Business

Bamboo is sustainable and will keep supplying my business for many years to come. Having the bamboo gives me so many options for products for my business. When I started growing bamboo most people hated the plant. Now that products are being produced every day it is a lot more accepted. It is needed for our environment. With bamboo being more widely used as timber it is cutting down the number of trees that need to be cut. Which will again help the environment. Without it my business would suffer greatly. In fact it has become the biggest part of my business and couldn’t run my business without it. Imagine having an unlimited supply of lumber to build with or a privacy screen surrounding your home.

A Bamboo For Everything

Let me tell you having 50 different species of bamboo you always have just what someone is looking for. From ground covers to giants we carry quite a few of each. We try to carry plants for every season. And plants for every reason. We also carry many of the plants most nurseries do not carry. We take pride in our plants and we guarantee most of the plants we sell. Cold hardy bamboo plants are what we sell and we would never sell you a bamboo that is out of its zone requirements. If you would like to get your bamboo grove started today you can visit me at 51 Enzweiler Rd. Alexandria, KY 41001. But you must call first I am open by appointment only. (859)242-1602 Jeff.

Fastest Growing Plant Bamboo

The Fastest growing plant I grow is Bamboo. Bamboo can create a privacy screen in just a year or two. Depending on how far you spread them apart. Usually the recommendation is 4-5 ft apart. But I have planted it right beside itself and created an instant privacy screen. It is just beautiful in its maturity when it has all of its leaves. Because it gets quite bushy and cannot be seen through. Now the fastest growing plant I grow is Phyllostachys Rubromarginata. It spreads far and wide it’s almost like a snake. It finds its way in every direction. It’s fairly quick to size up and then really gets moving. You must keep an eye on this one because it runs fast. Out of all my bamboo I believe this one has the most shoots each year. And its large leaves give it a fullness like no other bamboo. I really love this bamboo and I am counting the days until this great bamboo matures out. I expect it to get about 45-50 ft tall and 3 inches in diameter.

Fastest Growing Plant Hardiness

Fastest Growing Plant

I grow many different bamboo that are hardy. Phyllostachys Rubromarginata is only hardy to -5 degrees F. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth.  But it really seems much hardier than that. It really handles the cold winter winds well. Hardly any leaf burn at all in the winter. Rubro has very smooth canes and they  are solid green in color. but usually fade to an olive-green color. I originally planted this bamboo about 6 years ago from a division i got in Florida at Beautiful Bamboo. Ralph and Sherry gave me a great deal and I’m very pleased to this day. It was a great addition to my bamboo gardens and I have this one as one of my favorite 5 bamboos. I  have some great deals on this the fastest growing plant I grow. Right below with the PayPal button you can get yours today. I will ship as soon as I get the order.

Bamboo Privacy Screen

Bamboo For Privacy

A bamboo privacy screen may be just what you’re looking for. Bamboo has many different uses but the biggest one of all is Privacy. People are tired of being scrutinized by every move they make. And in our own yard we have the right to some privacy. Why all of a sudden people can’t mind their own business is beyond me. Because as busy as my life is I don’t have time to worry about what someone else is doing. Bamboo will give you all the privacy you want while still looking beautiful all year-long. Take for instance a

Bamboo Privacy Screening

Bamboo Privacy Screening

wooden privacy fence will need to be painted year after year but a bamboo grove may just require a little watering from time to time. I would much rather water than scrape and paint every year wouldn’t you. Plus a bamboo privacy screen is much more eco-friendly because you don’t have to cut down trees to get the fence.

Deck Privacy

Even if you have a deck that is a couple of stories high or a second or third story window that you want to block, bamboo privacy screening is the answer for many bamboo will grow to great heights. Just make sure you find the right bamboo for the right application. There is one that will work for every situation, at least above zone 5 that I know of.  With a wooden privacy fence there are restrictions on height but not with a living fence. There are no restrictions to my knowledge. Personally, I would rather look at some beautiful living growing plants than an old board fence but that’s  just my opinion.

Fast Growing Trees

When bamboo starts it’s shooting it only takes 3 months to grow their full height for that stage in their life so if a mature bamboo shoots it can grow up to 40-50 ft tall in just 3 months. I’m telling you it’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen in my life. I’ve seen my bamboo grow to over 2 1/2 ft in 24 hours. It sounds crazy but  it’s true. If you’d like more info check out my other blog at mybamboogrove.com or hardybamboo.org or makemoneygardening.org   We have many different species of cold hardy bamboo for sale. Just call (859)468-5625 ask for Jeff.

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.

Transplant

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.

Bamboo Shooting Season Here We Grow Again

Bamboo Shooting Season Nears And Here We Grow Again

Bamboo Shooting Season

Bamboo Shooting Season

With the onset of winter comes the building excitement for bamboo shooting season and here we grow again. Within the next couple of months bamboo shooting season will begin. And I can’t wait because I may just see some 2 inch diameter canes. Coming out of my 15-year-old grove of Phyllostachys aureosulcata.  Yellow groove bamboo. I now have 39 different species. And I’m still looking for more. My goal is to have 50 species by the end of 2013.

Bamboo Shooting Season First To Grow

Bamboo shooting is a great site to see. Because at the end of march the bamboo shooting begins. And by the end of June, the new shoots will be over 30 ft. tall. It will be insane to watch it grow that fast. It amazes me every year. The next to shoot will be P. Aureosulcata “Aureocaulis” or the solid yellow version of yellow groove. Same hardiness and same growth habits. Just a little later to shoot and size-up. Next comes the ground cover bamboo shooting there are quite a few of these. Next will be the Pseudosasa Japonica or arrow bamboo. It always looks great. Very tropical looking with its large palm like leaves. Next is the Phyllostachys Nigra or Black bamboo it shoots green shoots that later turn black after about 6 months to a year. I should see some nice canes from these this year. Next will be Phyllostachys Rubromarginata and the Phyllostachys Vivax Aureocaulis and then comes the Phyllostachys Atrovaginata and Phyllostachys Nuda and then Aurea. The last 2 to shoot are my Phyllostachys Bambusoides”Castillon” and Finally Arundinaria Gigantea. And by this time the gardens have completely changed and closed in just a bit more. A bit more privacy and a lot more beauty. After a nice winter nap it will be time to say here we grow again.
