Different coloured bamboo canes
The State Rose and Garden show is approaching very quickly. Only just over a week away. With the weather improving now is the time to get out into the garden and get things ready for Christmas. The State Rose and Garden show would be a great event to get all the ideas flowing for your own garden. The show has a program of different guest speakers from Vasili Kanidiadis (SBS plant and produce guru) to Jane Edmanson (3AW and gardening Australia) and several others. 

This show is on Sat 19th and Sun 20th November from 10am - 4pm. According to the website entry is FREE (another bonus of the event).

Bamboo is such a versatile plant. It is fast growing and can clump together to form a great screen or wind break. You can trim or hedge your bamboo to suit the situation or the garden that it is planted in. The picture above shows bamboo that has been hedged to provide a green screen that can block neighbouring buildings. Once you are inspired by the different coloured roses at the show then come and talk to us about the different coloured bamboo.  We would love to assist you with your bamboo requirements.

Plants love spring and so do we.  We are attending a couple of big events in September to get our wonderful bamboo out to many more people.

Firstly the Mt Macedon Plant Lovers Fair is on from the 17th to the 18th of September (from 10am to 4pm). This is a two day event held at the beautiful Bolobok estate. According to the Mt Macedon website, this property is listed on Victorian Heritage Register and is noted for its magnificent garden. This is a double bonus for garden lovers. Come and view the many different stall holders and also admire the surrounds.  You can find Bolobok at 370 Mt Macedon Road in Macedon, 3440. 

The second event is the Henty Machinery Field Days. This event is on from the 20th to the 22nd of September from 8am to 5pm. A massive 3 day event featuring more that 800 exhibitors.

Bamboo Creations at Akoonah Park, Berwick market

Bamboo Creations Victoria are going to berwick
Akoonah Park Berwick market
Bamboo Creations Victoria are back at Berwick this weekend attending the Akoonah Park market.  You can find Akoonah park on the corner of Princess Hwy and Beaconsfield-Emerald Road. This is open from 8am - 1:30pm.  As you can see from the picture on the right there some of the market is undercover. This is very handy if the weather is not that friendly.  Come along and visit us at Akoonah Park.

Winter is still a good time to plant Bamboo. Bamboo does like a moist soil so let mother nature do the watering for you. Get them settled in your garden prior to the hotter summer weather. A cover of mulch will assist the bamboo survive the frosty mornings. Also, a good helping of loose soil or potting mix will assist with the water drainage so the bamboo can decide on how much water it needs.

Watering bamboo tips for Hotter days

Bamboo creations recommend watering systems on hot days
Bamboo Watering Timer System

The days over summer can become quite hot and your Bamboo may need a little bit of extra care during the hotter days.  Here are a few tips from Bamboo Creations Victoria on how to care for your Bamboo during the hotter summer days.

Watering of Bamboo is very important as Bamboo likes being moist, especially on the extremely hot days. If the bamboo gets too dry then the leaves will curl down and brown off. The culms will start to discolour from their nice green to a golden colour.

To ensure you give your bamboo the best chance in life we recommend regular watering. In the morning and at night in the extreme hot weather. They do not need lots of water in 1 big hit.  It is normally better to water smaller amounts on a regular basis.  The picture on the above shows an example of a watering systems.  These are not that expensive and can give your plants a quick burst at regular intervals during the day.

Depending on the size of your bamboo you may like to try the following watering suggestions:

  •  Small bamboo 1 min every 5 hours 
  •  Medium bamboo 1 min every 4 hours 
  •  Large Bamboo 2 min every 4 hours 
  •  Extra Large 5 min every 4 hours 

Our nursery does this from 7am to 7pm. To reduce the amount of water being used, why not try utilising some of your grey water. 

This watering regime is normally used just for the summer months to avoid your bamboo drying out on the hot days.
