Gisborne Market this weekend

We are back to the Gisborne market this weekend.  We love attending this market as our nursery is part of the community.  This is our local market so we get to chat to our local people.  We also love it when others from other communities come and say Hello to us at our Bamboo stall.  Bring all your bamboo questions and garden ideas/requirements.

We will be taking our fabulous Cream Stripe bamboo. The picture on the right is from one of our customer.  They have used the Cream Stripe bamboo as driveway screen or block. This will grow very nicely here and block the fence to make a green hedge along the driveway.  They will be able to trim and shape this bamboo to give a lovely green effect to make driving home a real treat.

Mens bamboo singlets on special

We are having a special on Mens Singlets this month.  They are being sold at 20% discount meaning that they were $25 and are now selling for $20.  Our website has been changed to reflect this discount so either visit us at a market over the next little while or purchase through the site.  Don't forget that if you purchase 3 or over bamboo products through the site then postage is free.  We have lots of fabulous colours and sizes to choose from.

We have now included a picture gallery on our website - this has been coming for quite a while but now it is here.  At the moment we do not have a lot of pictures but will be adding to this over time.  We have a category of customer pictures.  Please email us pictures of your bamboo and we may put it up for you at our site.  We will be changing this soon to include progress pictures of our plants and customer plants so you can see how fast this fantastic plant grows.  Keep an eye on our gallery to see some fantastic pictures of bamboo.

We have also added bamboo fibre singlets to our site.  We have both mens and womens singlets in many different colours and sizes.  We are continuing to add new products to our site so please visit to see what is new.  We are also adding a shopping cart so you can purchase online.  We will let you know via this blog when that is up and running.

Easter at Bamboo Creations

Albo Striata from bamboo creations victoria
Albo Striata
Bamboo Creations are open during Easter

Our Bamboo Nursery is open during Easter from 9 - 5 on all days except Good Friday. We have lots of bamboo on special over this time.  Please call us on 1300 654 454 to arrange an appointment.  We prefer an appointment so we can show you our extensive range of different bamboo and answer all your questions about this fantastic plant.

New Bamboo added to our Website

We have added the Albo Striata (pictured to the left) to our website.  The botanical name for this plant is
Bambusa multiplex albo striata.  This is a clumping type of bamboo with a clump diameter of 1 metre.  It has a maximum height of approx 8 metres.  This is an upright, tight clumping bamboo that is stunning to look at with dark green culms and white striations.  There is more information about this on our website.  You can either find this through the bamboo information page as this has been added to the bamboo table.  This table has a link directly to the bamboo product page.  You can all also access this new bamboo through the clumping bamboo category.

Bamboo  Fibre Underwear and Singlets

We are currently working on adding our bamboo fibre underwear and singlets to the website.  These are made from the same high quality material as our bamboo fibre socks.  We are also working on a shopping cart for these products as we have been asked by many people at our markets about where to purchase these high quality products.  We will let you know when this is available - coming soon.

Have a happy and safe Easter break from all at Bamboo Creations Victoria
