Oldhamii is on Special.

Oldhamii: Our Oldhamii bamboo (botanical name: Dendrocalamopsis oldhamii, common name: Speedy Screen).  This is a fast growing bamboo that is great to screen out a building or to create a green screen like the photo to the right.  This plant has been grown as a screen along a driveway retaining wall.  This is growing in St Kilda in Melborne.

Oldhamii is an upright tropical clumping bamboo.  This has a maximum height of approx 12metres so will create a fantastic green screen or wind break.

Our Oldhamii is now on special until sold out.  We are selling tall plants in a 20cm pot for just $39.  If you would like some of these plants but are not totally ready for them then we can store them for you for up to 6 weeks.  We can also bring them with us to one of our next markets.  Give us a call and we can discuss your requirements.

Talk to us about the different Bamboo and where they are best used.  We will be taking different types from screening bamboo (screen out that building next door with a lovely green screen) to ornamental that can be displayed in pots.  All of our plants have been tested in Melbourne weather so if they can grow in Melbourne they can grow anywhere.

Would love to see you all in Canberra, come and say G-Day.

This is the first time that we have been to Murrumbateman Field days so we are looking forward to seeing this event.  All our plants have been trialed and tested in Melbourne under Victoria's extreme weather conditions.  This means that other states should have success with our plants as they can cope with Melbourne's four seasons in 1 day.  We will be bringing a range of Screening and Ornamental bamboo.  We will also be bringing several rare Japanese Maples.  Come along and say Hi.
