Bamboo

BAMBOOS ARE VERY DESIRABLE GARDEN PLANTS, IDEAL AS FOCAL POINTS OR FOR ADDING STRUCTURE TO BORDERS.

Beautiful Bamboo in Dorset

Bamboos thrive in moist, but well-drained soil in a sheltered, sunny spot. They tolerate most soil types, but some, such as Shibatea, require acid soil or ericaceous potting compost. Bamboo will grow in poor soils, but not in constant wet, boggy or extremely dry conditions.

Plant in spring so that energy stored in the bamboo’s rhizomes is used to produce strong, new canes in summer. These rhizomes then produce roots before the plant becomes dormant from autumn to spring.

Before planting, dig in well-rotted garden compost or manure to raise the organic content of the soil. This will also improve its ability to hold moisture.

If you are looking for mature sub tropical specimen shrubs such as the hardy palm Trachycarpus Fortunei, banana plants, or large speciman bamboos this is the place to go, but they also stock smaller sizes of most varieties at reasonable prices.

Geraldine

The nursery is located in the owners’ private residence and you can see many of the plants and shrubs growing in the owners’ garden, which is a delight.  We have been visiting Crawford Hardy Ferns several times a year for many years now and we alway end up adding to our collection of hardy sub tropical plants.
