Bamboo Containment and Care

Bamboo Containment

This post will teach you the many ways of Bamboo containment and care. There are many ways to contain a running bamboo. You can start by just mowing around your new division. This will keep it semi-contained but if it is allowed to keep running it may  invade an area that you don’t mow. Now if you can mow a large area around the bamboo it can be contained this way. I have a grove of Arundinaria Gigantea that has been growing for many, many years and is completely contained by mowing on one side and forest on the other. However if let go these bamboo thickets or cane breaks can cover very large areas sometimes miles.

Bamboo Containment By Rhizome Pruning

One of the easier ways to contain bamboo is by rhizome pruning. Rhizome pruning is very easy, you just take a flat bladed shovel and push it into the ground. And cut off any rhizomes that surround your bamboo.  It must  be done before the rhizome hardens off. After that it will grow new shoots. Cut rhizomes after the canes(culms) are not actively growing in the fall.  And again in the spring before new growth(shoots) begin. You can also dig a trench around the bamboo. And when the rhizomes grow out into it clip them off. Or the hardest method of bamboo containment of all dig a trench around the bamboo and install a bamboo barrier.

Bamboo Containment Money Making Method

The best method of bamboo containment for me is to dig up the strays and sell them. If you need more information on containing bamboo stop by and we’ll give you step by step instructions and a better understanding on growing and containing bamboo. I now grow 39 different species of bamboo and will have more soon. It is my obsession it is my life and I now cannot live without it. I still contain it but let it run wild for a while so it can mature. For a mature bamboo is a beautiful sight to see. One of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. Thank You for reading.
