Growth progress of Gracilis Bamboo

The photos on the right have been sent in from one of our satisfied customers.  They have planted Bambusa textilis var Gracilis or commonly know as Slender Weavers Bamboo along their fence line to create a beautiful green screen.  The shot on the left is when the bamboo was planted.  The photo on the right is the same plants 15 months later. What a fantastic screen. Imagine looking at this garden instead of the normal panel fence.  It is even starting to screen out the neighboring buildings. They have said that they will try and remember to send the same shot in another 15 months.  That will be great to see - Thanks for your effort.
