Hi Sherry, it was great meeting you and Ralph yesterday. Dianna was so right to get different varieties to plant around the property! The giant timber looks so cool.. I love it. We have a spot for every one of the bamboo we got and planted 3 of them last evening. I dug a huge wide and deep hole to plant the big bamboo and filled it with 2 large wheel barrels of mulch. Here is a pic of it.

I poked out the piece of dry bamboo and made a didgeridoo it sounds good but i think i need to get the tube cleaned out a little better to make it sound louder.

Thanks, Doug and Dianna

My response:
I'm glad it worked out so well. Remember that even after the bamboos are planted, you can always apply top dressings of organic matter (a good use for all of your horse's manure) around the bamboos. You will be seeing lots of new shoots emerge over the next few months so take pictures now when they're relatively small or you won't remember how they looked. Thank you for choosing Beautiful Bamboo and have fun watching your baby 'boos grow!

  1. Bamboo is a phenomenal material!

    In addition to being a great structural material, the list of things that one can make from bamboo is very long.

    The fibers from the bamboo plant can be broken down and woven into a very fine fabric. The clothing made from this fabric is incredibly soft and durable. The market for bamboo clothing is growing at a phenomenal rate. Most of the clothing being produced right now is for women and babies, but more children's and men's clothing is hitting the market each day.

    If you are looking for styles that are eco-friendly and sustainable, bamboo is the material for you!
