This is another busy weekend for Bamboo Creations Victoria, we are visiting both Flemington and Sunbury markets on Sunday.  Come and say Hi at one of these markets.  

Sunbury is a brand new market so we would love to see you all there.  The inaugural launch is this sunday the 24th February. The Sunbury Central Market is located at 25-47 Horne Street, Sunbury.  There is a website for this market (www.sunburycentralmarket.com.au) but is a little light on for information as they have not had there first market.  We will keep you updated about this market so please view our website or keep an eye on this blog.  As always we will be taking lots of different bamboo plants and other bamboo and garden related items for you to look at and purchase.

We are currently working on a few new products for our website: Albo Striata and Bambusa Chungii Barbelletta.  We have been testing Barbelletta for some time to ensure that it is right for the Victorian climate. We have found this to be a great grower and we now have stock available for you to purchase.  These new products will be up on our website shortly so keep an eye out for all the statistics of these great new plants.

Our socks have been selling well.  Don't forget we now stock both bamboo fibre mens underwear and bamboo fibre singlets.  Both these new products offer the same anti-bacterial qualities as our socks.


Some products on our website fall into several categories such as Clumping and Best Screening - Why is this?  

A Bamboo can be planted in a few different ways in your garden. They can be planted as a standalone beautiful ornamental plant or as a screen.  A clumping bamboo grows new shoots very close to the mother culm. Different clumping bamboo plants have different size clumps - some are wider and some are thinner. For wider clumping plants, the new shoots grow to form a tight clump of bamboo which is difficult to see through so it can be used as a perfect screen or wind break.

Clumping categorised plants mean new shoots appear closer to the mother culms. Clumping bamboo "will not spread" it only springs new canes from within and around the base of the clump. This bamboo is fantastic for hedging, garden features.

Best screening categorised plants means that they are good plants for screening.  They grow quickly as a dense evergreen screen. They have a tight clump and dense foliage. They make a great hedge or sound/wind break.

Ornamental categorised plants mean that the plant can used as a standalone beautiful ornament.  These look stunning in your garden as a feature.

Running categorised plants have longer and fast-spreading rhizomes. If not contained or maintained regularly, running bamboo could become a nuisance. This type of bamboo can run underground and pop up to cover an increasingly larger area; however it can be easily contained with root barriers, raised beds, or by rhizome pruning.

More information can be obtained about the different categories on our webpage (Bamboo-information). If you need more advise on which type of plant to purchase please do not hesitate to call us and we can discuss your requirements.
