Bamboo Creations Victoria: This Week

Bamboo Creations Victoria: This Week: Bamboo Creations Victoria   would like to remind our viewers that we have many events coming around in September,  Please visit our  Event...


  1. Hello bamboo people.
    I have heard a lot about a plant called grasilus. After checking it out on the web it seems it grows anywhere from 4 to 8 meters. What would be right for Victoria and will it survive in a 30cm wide garden bed.

  2. Hi Marcus,
    Thank you for your enquiry,
    Slender Weaver Bamboo Commonly known as Gracilis is the most popular bamboo for its tight clump and very erect habit.
    But some people don’t realise that it can grow up to 8metres high in most parts of Melbourne,
    In the colder parts of Victoria it can grow less in height
    Gracilis has a 1.5m diameter clump on a 6 to 8 year old plant so I wouldn’t recommend Gracilis to be planted in such a small area
    The bamboo I would recommend is Bambusa albo minor {Cream Stripe} It is a nice tight clump and only grows 6 metres in high
    This is a fare better option for that size garden bed
    Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions and we look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind Regards
    Bamboo Creations Victoria
