Nurture Fargesia Borinda Angustissima

Although bamboo plants are tolerant, there is a number of natural threats. Mitigating these early threats is the best thing to do to protect the new growth. So, growing bamboo requires care and protection, especially when they are newly planted.

Here are the common dangers:

  • New leaves, shoots and rhizomes tips are susceptible to slug attack.
  • Frozen soil can cause damage to the root hairs and rhizomes.
  • Strong winds can damage the new culms.

Protect Borinda Angustissima Bamboo

To avoid the natural threats to your bamboo plants, do these:

Generally, the bamboo plants thrive in well-aerated loam, or sand and loose clay soil but the older plants will require fertiliser and moisture, at least, once in Spring. Check for new shoots, or whether the leaves and soil are in good condition.

This clump-forming bamboo loves moist soil, but the root hairs will decay very quickly in waterlogged soil.

Propagate Fargesia Borinda Angustissima

There are three ways to propagate bamboo plants:

  • from the seeds, or
  • by culm and rhizome cuttings, or
  • by culm separation.

Some people have successfully used conventional ‘Layering’ as the fourth way to propagate large bamboo. 

However, propagating bamboos from the cuttings and by separation is, by far, the two popular ways many gardeners use in the UK.

If you are propagating bamboo plants either from the rhizome or culm cuttings or planting a recent purchase, protect the new growths. 

Add Slug and Snail Killer around the new plants, the slugs can wipe off the tender growths if left unprotected.
