Propagate bamboo

If you want to propagate bamboo from seeds or cuttings or by separation, you’ll find the articles useful. Each article identifies the best qualities and features of the bamboos. And gives insight into how to propagate them.

Propagating bamboo is a delicate endeavour because the new plants need good soil, moisture and protection from slugs and bugs. Check out my videos for inspiration, I showed the challenges of propagating bamboo plants by separation and from culm and rhizome cuttings.

Grow and Care

Although the bamboo plants are tolerant and undemanding in many instances, they will need care as they grow. Care in terms of

  • containing the spread of rhizomes,
  • cutting the old culms, and
  • feeding them with fertilizers every once in a while.

As the Award-winners grow, their best features will come through. Sit back and enjoy the lush greenery and cover they provide.
