Gisborne Market this weekend 4th November

We always have a great time at the Gisborne market as it is the closest to our Bamboo Creations Nursery.  This is great fun for all the family including the kids. It is held at Howey Reserve Gisborne along the service roads of Aitken and Hamilton Streets between 9am and 2pm. Including Bamboo Creations Nursery, the Gisborne Market has over 250 stalls offering a large range of products. The town of Gisborne benefit from the market. Funds raised from the market have been given to the local community groups such as the SES, CFA, Scouts etc. Come along, say hello to us at Bamboo Creations Nursery and support the local area.

We will be taking with us lots of Speedy Screen bamboo (Dendrocalamopsis Oldhamii) and Siverstipe (Bambusa Multiplex cv.).  Now is a great time to plant these bamboo and others in the range.  Talk to us about the different types of bamboo and the one that would suit your requirements.

As we have blogged before, Dendrocalamopsis Oldhamii is also known as Speedy Screen Bamboo due to its growing speed.  A great bamboo to plant with the kids and monitor its growth (just like Jack and the Beanstalk). Measure the bamboo and keep a table of its growth just like you measure the kids on the back of the door. 

Don't forget about our nursery in Riddells Creek. We can show you all the different bamboo varieties (you will be amazed at the different types).  We do like you to ring before-hand (same day appointments are available) so we can arrange a time that suits you to give you our undivided attention. So make sure you come with lots of questions about bamboo and how it can fit in to your own garden.
