hi all, can anyone please advise the best time of year to split a black bamboo?



Now is good . . . split mine 3 weeks ago, and it's happy.

I would go for spring, as frost getting in to the disturbed soil round the rhizomes will do it no good. Bear in mind that 'happy' now may not be happy after a hard frost in a few weeks' time. Phil J
