Bamboo Plants Are Easily Grown
Bamboo plants are garden plants of the evergreen variety. They are easy to care for and do not require a lot of water. They are used in gardens in many ways and add an exotic feel to any backyard; They can be used as a hedge or screen to add privacy to your yard or in any number of garden arrangements. Bamboo can grow in almost any type of climate and can last for many years. They come in a wide range of sizes, including dwarf bamboo and timber bamboo, which is giant-sized. Running bamboo proliferates and can spread over a wide range, and this has caused many people to believe that all bamboo is not suitable for gardens. You must plant the right type for you to be able to maintain its growth. A variety called clumping bamboo is much more suited to backyard gardens. It grows slowly and does not spread.
Bamboo require very little maintenance
Bamboo plants can also be grown in small containers inside the home as well as outside. Placing a number of them in your landscaping will help you to showcase your other garden plants. They are also known by many cultures to bring luck to their owners. They have also been grown to become bonsai trees. The stems are easily shaped and can be pruned to interlace with each other. You can also prune bamboo trees back into topiaries. The under leaves are removed, leaving only clumps of leaves at the top. When planting bamboo trees as a screen, they should be planted in the area approximately 2 to 3 feet apart. That allows them to spread out and create the coverage you need. Pruning them back will stop any further growth into areas you do not want it. Once they have been planted, they will require very little maintenance.
