Planting Bamboo in the winter

Bamboo creations victoria have gracilis bamboo on special over winter 2017
Gracilis on special at Bamboo Creations Victoria
Winter is now upon us and some people find it a struggle to get out into the garden from the warmth of the house. If this is the case then those bamboo specials from Bamboo Creations Victoria can remain in the pot until the weather gets better. Bamboo needs to be kept moist so don't forget to water the plants, maybe every second day. 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). If you ring and order over the phone we still have the deal where you can collect the plants for free from one of our events that we attend.

New events have been loaded onto the website. Check it out so you can plan your next few months. Don't forget to come and say Hi.

Gracilis bamboo from Bamboo Creations Victoria

gracilis bamboo on sale over easter 2017 at Bamboo Creations Victoria nursery.
Bamboo Creations Victoria have Gracilis on special over Easter
We have spoken before about the wonderful Gracilis Bamboo. This is because it is one of our most popular Bamboo. Over the Easter period we will be having this Bamboo on special starting from $35. 

Bambusa textilis var. gracilis or commonly known as Slender Weavers Bamboo is a fast growing, clumping type of bamboo. Grow it along a fence line to block out the neighbours. Like one of our pictures on the right, you can just see the neighbours house. Imagine the same picture in a few years time. Privacy with a nice green screen. 

This bamboo will grow to about 6 metres tall but can be cut and hedged if you don't want it to grow that big. It has a nice tight clump with a cane diameter of about 4cm. Come along to our Nursery in Riddells Creek over Easter to see this bamboo and all our other bamboo and take home a few specials.

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.
