Bamboo is a fantastic plant which sometimes gets a bad reputation  as a very invasive specimen.While this is true to an extent, it is normally due to a lack  of understanding when it comes to an appropriate location and a consideration for it immediate surroundings.

If you are unsure you are probably best to plant in a pot and use as a wind break or screen.As with all potted plants it will need watering and feeding

Above is a Bamboo hedge we maintain for a customer on an annual basis. 

Note how effective a screen it is even well past the first week of December. 

On another point it will survive harsh weather and even with the heavy burden of snow it is content to lie to the ground and bounce back when a welcome taw arrives. 

On a windy or even breezy day watch how it dances in harmony and if you really want to make the most of this spectacle up light and watch the shadows bring your garden to life on the dullest of evenings.
