As mentioned in the previous blog post now is a great time to plant bamboo. Get it in the ground before winter sets in. The ground is still nice and warm bringing out the shoots and establishing the bamboo in the ground. Shoots will continue to appear until winter. 

As the ground and the weather is still a little warm, don't forget to keep the water up to your bamboo plants. 

Bamboo watering tips
  • Bamboo loves the water and it is best to give them a smaller drink on a regular basis.
  • If the sun is shining then give them a little more
  • If it has been raining then you can give them a little less.
  • If the leaves are curling or you see brown tips on the leaves then give them a little more.
Here is a rough guide to bamboo watering.
  • Small bamboo - 1 min twice per day
  • Medium bamboo - 1 min twice per day 
  • Large bamboo - 10 min twice per day
  • Extra Large bamboo - 10 min twice per day.

Bamboo in Autumn

Bamboo creations victoria have hedge bamboo on special in autumn
Hedge bamboo on special in Autumn
Autumn is here and now is the time to get some bamboo in the garden before winter sets in. Now is a great time to plant bamboo. Bamboo loves the sun and it loves a bit of water. Clumping bamboo will generally start to shoot late summer or early autumn here in Victoria. You should see many new culms start appearing from now until winter. Over winter they will probably quieten down a little but people still have seen new growth over the winter period.

To enhance the new culms and keep it looking healthy and green, feed them with a high Nitrogen fertiliser. Drown the bamboo with water once you have fertilised. Keep watering the plant and do not let it dry out. Another way to keep your bamboo looking great is to spray the foliage with Charlie Carp or Seasol about every 2 weeks.

To kick Autumn off with a bang we have Hedge bamboo on sale. These normally retail for $45 each but we have them for $29. Please be quick as this price cannot last.

Hedge bamboo is a clumping type of bamboo with a maximum height of about 4 metres. It really bushes out making it a great bamboo for hedging. For more details visit our Hedge bamboo web page: www.bamboo-plants.com.au/bamboo-products/hedge-bamboo.php
