Bamboo Creations Nursery are heading over to South Australia to be part of the plant fair at Al-Ru Farm.  

This is a gardeners delight with many plant nurseries selling different types of plants (including fabulous bamboo).  The plant fair is held in the magnificent gardens of Al-Ru Farm which has been created by Ruth Irving.  According to the Open Gardens website, the surrounds should be awash with pink silene, lime green euphorbias, campanulas and crabapples, and Bellis perennis.  

We will be taking our normal van full of different bamboo plants for you to look at and purchase.  Our Cream Stripe is one in particular that we are currently stocking and look great. Botanical name:  Bambusa albo minor, Common name: Cream Stipe. Cream Stripe is a clumping type of bamboo that will grow to about 6 metres. These have a beautiful cream stripe down the culms (hence the common name: Cream Stripe). Can be used to create a beautiful living wall. It is very dense so will make a great block or screen.  Talk to us about this an our other bamboo varieties.

So you can get the most out of the plant fair, a plant creche has been provided so you do not miss out on that special plant and the whole fair experience.

The plant fair is held at One Tree Hill Rd, One Tree Hill, South Australia.  It is open: 10am-4.30pm. $9.00, no charge for children under 18.  The following is a link to more details about the plant fair:

See you all at the fair.

We had a great time up at Henty and sold lots of bamboo products.  Our bamboo socks, bamboo trunks and our bamboo singlets were a big hit.  People purchased these through the stall and some came back to purchase more through the website.

Our website offers many different bamboo products with more coming.  Our bamboo socks, trunks and singlet have our 3 for postage free offer.  If you buy 3 or more bamboo products then postage will be free.  You can also bundle them with your bamboo purchase and have then delivered free to one of our up and coming markets.

This Weekend

Come and visit us at our nursery this weekend as we have a little extra time due to no markets or expos this weekend.  We have a large range of bamboo for you to have a look at.  We have plenty of Gracilis and others for you to look at and buy.  Come armed with load of bamboo related questions.

Bambusa Textilis gracilis

Common name - Slender Weavers bamboo or Botanical name - Bambusa Textilis var. gracilis is sometimes known as the king of bamboo due to its fast growth.  Look at the photo on the left.  Gracilis can be cut to any height to give a fantastic green hedge, screen or wind break.

Gracilis is a clumping type of bamboo with a height of 6 to 8 metres.  This can be cut back to any height so you can control how it grows or what it screens.  It can be planted in narrow garden beds to hedge along your driveway or other position to get a fast green hedge or specimen plant.

Our website has more information and specifications about this wonderful bamboo. Click this link to take directly to our Gracilis page - For more information please call 1300 65 44 54
