Thanks to the generosity of Aaron and Erin, I'm now the proud owner of four giant clumps of bamboo, probably over $500 worth, FREE.
They dug out a huge mass of the stuff from a relative's yard and kindly offered some of the surplus to anyone who wanted it. Of course, I very quickly said "Yes".
I had planned to plant bamboo along the fenceline outside our sliding door, and now it's all lined up just waiting till I have the time to deal with it.
Those are 4m tall canes!
Yes, I took the pics through the (dirty) glass. It's raining out there!
It's lucky that the weather has turned cool and wet this week - no chance of the plants suffering heat stress before I can get them in the ground.
