Hi Jennifer - 15 short months ago we had the pleasure of visiting Beautiful Bamboo. We were challenged with how we could hide a neighbor's recent addition of a 40 foot motor coach and shed. After a lot of research, we decided to go ahead and invest in bamboo.
We selected 15 Graceful Bamboo plants and upon delivery by Tim to our home, we dug in and planted them. Following your exacting directions, and just over a year later, we are more than thrilled with the results. I have attached a few before an after images to show you how they are progressing.
We continue to be amazed at the speed at which they grow and how hearty they are. We are now seeing a new phase of growth and the new growths are now reaching 20+ in height!
I urge anyone in need of a natural privacy fence to look into bamboo ay Beautiful Bamboo. You will not regret it!

Jason, a customer from Kissimmee, FL purchased some Seabreeze clumping bamboo in May of 2010. A year and one month later, his small plant has sent up dozens of lush new shoots that are fuller and taller than the previous year's growth.
Seabreeze is one of our most prolific clumping bamboos, sending up more new shoots every year than most other clumpers. In the above picture (on right), you will notice some of this summer's new shoots sticking up above the others. Those are "babies" that haven't leafed out yet. By the time they do leaf out, they will be full and fluffy just like the canes below. And the above-ground growing season has just begun! New shoots will continue to emerge from now until November. Can you imagine how big and full his clump of bamboo will look by then? I've asked Jason to send us follow up pictures at the end of the growing season and when he does I will add them to the blog.
