Re: “To Bamboo or Not to Bamboo

What the article says is true! Our neighbor had a lovely pond with a small container of bamboo near our shared fence. They sold the house to a new couple who, for whatever reason, chose not to tend to the plants near the pond. That was 18 years ago. Today the bamboo runs the length of the fence (30 feet), under the fence and now well into our lawn. The root of a bamboo is just as tough as the bamboo itself. I used to dig and pull the roots cutting them with a good sharp set of clippers. Today, I am older and just don't have the energy to keep up with the digging. My only hope is to cut any green sprouts that come to the surface. I just don't know what I'll do when it starts to grow under the redwood deck. I would advise to NEVER put this plant in or near your yard. There are so many other choices out there. Choose one that will not turn into a nightmare.

Re: “Wisdom of the Weeds

What suggestion do you have for invasive bamboo (courtesy of my neighbor's water garden). It's roots are as dense as the bamboo itself and they spread under the ground and sprout up shoots everywhere.
