Getting ready for Christmas 2017

Welcome to Summer 2017

Christmas is just around the corner so we have been busy at the nursery getting all our stock ready for the Festive Season. We have all types of bamboo starting from as low as $19.  Whether you are after something small which you can nurture or something a little more established we have the full range. We propagate most of our stock so it is ready for the Melbourne climate. 

With our bamboo knowledge and stock ready to look at and purchase, why not come out to Bamboo Creations Nursery and say G'Day. We update our website regularly with opening times (things do change from time to time). We also update our website with all the events that we attend. 

If you cannot get to the nursery then why not give us a ring and we can take the order over the phone and even deliver it to your door (delivery charges apply). 

Shhhh.  If you see the same product somewhere else cheaper in Victoria  then give us a call and we will try and beat the price (terms and conditions apply).

Once spring then comes around, you can get back out into the garden and plant all those lovely bamboo that you have accumulated over the winter period.

Speaking of specials, Bamboo Creations Victoria have Gracilis on special. Give us a ring or come and visit the Nursery (please check the website in case we have had to change our hours - thank you).

Drepanostachyum Khasianum or known as Khasia bamboo

Khasia Bamboo on special at Bamboo Creations Victoria
Our frog on our website has been changed to show that Khasia Bamboo is now on special. A 20cm pot with a 2 metre Khasia bamboo was $69 and is now selling for $49. This is nearly a 30% discount. Get in quick as stocks are limited.

Khasia is a clumping type of bamboo with spectacular white and purple rings around the internodes. This bamboo likes certain climates. It will tolerate full sun if moist and mulched or planted in a colder climate. Is not very frost hardy. If in doubt as to where to plant this bamboo, please give us a call on 1300 654 454 and have a chat to one of our bamboo specialists.

Khasia is a clumping type of bamboo with a clump size of about 1 metre. This can form a beautiful lime green screen to a height of about 4 metres. To form a screen you need to plant each bamboo plant about 1 metre apart. This also does quite nicely in pots as a specimen plant either indoor or outdoor. Once again if you need any information or advice on where to use this beautiful plant then give us a call or send us an email.

See you all at our next event at Seymour on the 17th - 19th Feb.

Bamboo Creations Victoria in the high country

A new year brings a new market. We are venturing up into the high country to attend the Mansfield Bush Market. Mansfield is magnificent this time of year with plenty of bush walking and wineries to keep you entertained as well as visiting Bamboo Creations Victoria in the Mansfield Bush Market. This market is held on Highett Street on the 28th Jan 2017 (Australia Day Weekend) from 8am – 2:30pm. The Mansfield shire will be closing Highett Street between Curia and Hunter streets which is the length of the market so you can relax and enjoy the different stalls.

Wonderful Bamboo
Once established, bamboo is very drought tolerant. A little water during the summer months will ensure that is ready for autumn and the cold winter months. Our bamboo has been grown in Victoria for the Victorian climate. All our bamboo is frost hardy and quick growing. They can block out unwanted views in less than 2 years. You will be surprised by the different coloured bamboo available. Talk to one of our Bamboo specialists.

The next market.
From one end of Victoria to the other in the same weekend. From the high country to the beach down at Foster (near Wilsons Promontory). We are attending the Foster market on the 29th Jan 2017. This is held on Station Street in Foster.

We hope you all have a great Australia Day with family and friends.
