Bamboo Planting

  1. Dig a hole that’s a bit larger than the size of the pot.
  2. Remove the plant from the pot. You may have to cut the pot from the bamboo plant if it doesn’t slide out easily.
  3. If the roots are tightly wrapped in the shape of the pot, you can score them a few times with a knife to help them to discontinue growing in a circular pattern. If you see any new shoots forming, avoid this area with your knife.
  4. Set the plant in the hole so that the soil with the plant is slightly below the level of the existing soil.
  5. Backfill with existing soil mixed with a rich topsoil or manure compost. Make sure that there are no air pockets around the root ball.
  6. Water well and often but do not allow your bamboo to stand in water for more than a few hours. Good drainage is important. If the leaves start to curl, your bamboo is not getting enough water.
  7. Add mulch around your bamboo and always maintain a good layer of mulch.
