Never too Late to Plant Bamboo

It’s never too late to plant bamboo. I have planted bamboo every month out of the year. Bamboo is the greatest plant on the planet today. It has more uses than any other plant alive today. Plus it produces more oxygen than trees and many other plants. Its great for the environment and has thousands of uses for things at home. Stays beautiful in the winter and holds its green leaves  even after ice storms. Its the most incredible plant I’ve ever grown.  Did you know that you can cut 1/3 of your grove every year and not hurt the health of the grove. My biggest bamboo is Phyllostachys Aureosulcata or Yellow Groove I have one shoot that is 1 1/2 inches in diameter. It will probably be at least 3o ft tall. Hardy to -15 degrees f., my yellow groove never disappoints. Very strong wood crooked canes and yellow stripes on green canes. Beautiful, just beautiful. It forms a nice bamboo grove. There are many different species of bamboo. Some are hardy some are not. If you’re thinking about planting bamboo be sure to check your zone restrictions and get a bamboo plant that is hardy to your zone or you will be highly disappointed the following year, when you find your bamboo dead. If your bamboo is hardy to your area many times it will hold it’s green leaves all winter long, which in the winter is a beautiful sight to see. There are many different species that are hardy to many different zones. Even though you can plant bamboo in any month of the year I wouldn’t necessarily recommend planting it in the frozen ground. It may be ok to do this but the plant may suffer severe transplant shock and take a long time to recover. The only reason I did it was because I was under a time limit to get it out or  they were going to bulldoze it. But it took a couple of years for it to bounce back.
