Ilene (pictured above) and Stephen, customers from Leesburg, purchased two very tall 7-gal Graceful bamboos today but the 20' tall plants wouldn't fit inside their SUV. Not a problem. With a bit of creativity, an open window, several old sheets and some string, we were able to secure the plants for the ride home.
