Hello, one Q, do you have the plant that dies above ground each year? They say this isn’t truely bamboo, I’m just curious.
I have wanted to get into the specialty bamboo’s and so have researched the run-away train you have. The bamboo companys say to mow/weedeat any area’s you don’t want it and it will die there. The same response as above really, which is to stop it from getting food from the sun.
BTW, there are slow growing bamboo’s that are truely beautiful also available are clump growing bamboo’s.
It isn’t really very ‘frugal’ to start this hobbie so I haven’t sold myself on it yet. The really nice looking bamboo’s are not cheap.
