How can I gat rid of about 10 new bamboos which have come up in my flower borders ? (The mother plant is in next door's garden)

Essex, United Kingdom Gb

I don't want them, they are overtaking my cottage garden border. They are multiplying rapidly !



No easy solution, I'm afraid. Only way is to thoroughly dig them out, pulling the running roots back to the original plant the other side of the fence, and then insert an impermeable barrier to a depth of 18 inches minimum in the soil along the area.

Is it worth asking your neighbour to come and collect his runaway plants??? (Then he can do the digging!)
