Fargesia bamboo for beginners: where to start?

Are you looking for a beautiful and easy plant to spruce up your garden? Consider a Fargesia bamboo. This bamboo species is hardy and grows well in European climates. It is easy to care for and is not invasive. MyPalmShop will provide you with some tips to help you out.

Choosing Fargesia bamboo

There are various species of Fargesia bamboo available. It is important to choose the right species that fits your garden and requirements. Some bamboos have thinner culms than others. The height can also vary. Choose a species that fits the size of your garden and the desired effect that the bamboo should create.

Planting Fargesia bamboo

After choosing a fitting Fargesia bamboo, you can start planting it. Ensure that the soil is well drained, and dig a hole that is slightly larger than the root ball of the bamboo. Plant the bamboo, and fill the rest of the hole with a mixture of soil and compost. Press the soil and provide sufficient water for the bamboo.

Fargesia bamboo maintenance

Fargesia bamboo is an easy plant to maintain. Ensure that the bamboo receives sufficient water, especially during dry periods. You can also fertilize the bamboo with organic fertilizer or with our bamboo fertilizer. Always follow the instructions on the packaging. Prune the bamboo only when really necessary, such as removing dead branches or to limit the height/size of your bamboo. If you want to prune the bamboo, it is preferably done in Spring.

Fargesia bamboo pot

Would you like to have a Fargesia bamboo yourself, but lack the garden to plant it in? You can also keep a Fargesia bamboo in a pot. Use a pot that is large enough and fill it with quality potting soil. Provide sufficient water and fertilize occasionally. Do keep in mind that the Fargesia bamboo is more vulnerable to frost when it is placed in a pot. Place it in a sheltered location during periods of severe frost.
