I fertilize the bamboo every chance I get. The rest is up to Ol' Bill.
Quick Update on BambooOur clumper bamboo died back entirely last winter. But, it came back with the spring and we've been fertilizing, watering and mulching it to get some hardened off growth before the freezes (if we have any) get here. Good culm growth shows the root system is fully established now. Should help with surviving the winter.
There's time for a dose of VermaPlex® to finish out the growing season.
