I have a bamboo in a large pot, I had to move it from a flower bed when it was young as it was too windy for it. So its now by the back door in it's pot but looking a little peeky. The leaves are browning a bit. Do they need feeding at all. I have been told they don't like pots but it's the best I can do.



get a much bigger pot for it and yes all plants need food not just sun and water .its outgrown its pot . it would be better in the ground but can be invasive and difficult to move .

But it didn't seem to like the high winds we have here, the new growth just went brown. I don't think I could find a bigger tub, it's huge! Was thinking about giving it away to someone with a sheltered garden but it was bought with a voucher given to me at my mothers funeral and I don't have the heart!!! But if someone can give it a good home maybe I can replace it with something else?
