Wow its like a wood of bamboo bet it makes a lovely sound when the wind blows through it.

You're right Morgana, it sounds great when the winds blowing. This is no trouble either where it is, next to the brook. I've been looking at this photo and a gunnera would look nice set in front, dont you think - the 2 contrasting leaves would maybe compliment each other.

I think it would look wonderful and yes they would compliment each other.

He he Eileen, you never know, they may be in there already.
The lovely thing with bamboo is that its evergreen of course, so a good screen.
Sandra: You can get some beautiful smaller bamboos - I fancy the black one but too expensive for me.

black sounds nice dawn, will look at that, but if pricy not sure

You can have a root of mine and try and control it :-)

I am sure I can hear those Pandas thudding the ground towards you from Twycross lol he he

I like the idea of the Gunnera Dawn. I have the black bamboo and I only have a tiny garden. It wasn't that expensive either but I did only buy a small one. It is now about 6ft high and has formed a clump of around 3ft.

have you a pic of that toto plez :o)

4 Nov, 2009

 

I have the black one, kept it in a pot for years, now in the garden, and like Toto our garden is very small, it is easily kept under control.

thanx dotty ;o)

Fabulous Dawn.....i love Bamboos....such a great sound in the breeze....:o)

4 Nov, 2009

 

Thanks Toto, I'll set a clump of gunnera in front :-) Will need John to split a root :-) So Toto/Dotty, you recommend the black bamboo then? I'm pleased to hear its not extortionately priced.

4 Nov, 2009

 

Hello Janey - yes, they are very therapeutic to be around :-))

4 Nov, 2009

 

I'll try to remember to sort a pic of it after the wedding Sandra. Like Dotty I had it in a pot for a few years and it did next to nothing but once planted in the garden it started to grow but as Dotty says it is easily controllable.

4 Nov, 2009

 

thanx toto, whens the wedding? this weekend!

4 Nov, 2009

 

Tomorrow.

5 Nov, 2009

 

I found mine to be quite slow at the start Holly but 7 years on they've suddenly took hold.

7 Nov, 2009

 

mine have been in for 2 years..... but they have got bigger this year.....

8 Nov, 2009

 

Wow,fantastic clump of bamboo Dawn !

8 Nov, 2009

 

Another couple of years Holly and I bet they'll go mad. Thanks Ray, the canes are becoming very useful and are very long :-)
