The Seymour farming expo held over 3 days in Seymour was a big success for Bamboo Creations Victoria. We met a lot of people including the a lady that came all the way from Canberra to visit Bamboo Creations (pictured below). Thanks for your huge effort in traveling that distance to visit the expo and us at Bamboo Creations.
We also got an email with the picture to the right. "I got my bamboo plant at the Seymour Expo after trying to grow some from seed with no luck at getting what I wanted. So I got one from bamboo Creations and could not be happier" Terese. Thank you Terese for emailing us with your comments and good luck with your fabulous bamboo plant.
The next market that we are attending is another big one. The Plant Fair at Burnley Gardens in Richmond, Melbourne. This is a 2 day event over the 1st and 2nd March (from 11am - 5pm). We will be taking our van full of interesting and beautiful bamboo plants.
· Dendrocalamopsis Oldhamii (or commonly known as Speedy Screen) is one beautiful upright bamboo. This Bamboo is a clumping type of Bamboo and needs at least a 1m wide garden bed. If you have anything less then you will need a root barrier.
· When you plant Oldhamii it will need plenty of water and fertilizer in the first year. This bamboo prefers a well-drained soil with organic matter or compost and plenty of mulch. The picture above is from clients in Gisborne. This shows Oldhamii planted down the driveway to create beautiful green screen. The first picture is an Oldhamii planted in Feb 2013 and the second picture is 1 year later so you can see the growth of this fantastic plant.
Oldhamii will grown to a maximum height of about 12 metres with a clump diameter of about 3 metres. This bamboo can be trimmed or hedged to create any screen or barrier that you need.
