Bamboo can be invasive (non-clumping). The bamboo you planted on one side of the garden may suddenly emerge in another place, where you have planned to put in other plants. Or your neighbours are forced to share your love for bamboo, by suddenly discovering a bamboo growing in their own garden. The spreading of bamboo is a good survival strategy for bamboo species that grow in their natural habitat. In our gardens, however, we want prevent bamboo spreading. This can be achieved in several ways. You can, for example, use nets, boundaries and root barriers.
Do not forget your root barrier
As mentioned, there are several ways to prevent bamboo from spreading. To prevent these bamboos from spreading in your garden, you will have to use a rhizome barrier. You can find these on our site. This way you can order the appropriate barrier together with your plant.
