The colourful and hardy bamboo variety

Spectabilis Bamboo isn't just one of the hardiest bamboos going but is an attractive tall plant that will make a bold statement in any garden, looking stunning wherever grown. This is one of our favourite plants chiefly because of the near-luminous stem's ability to brighten up any garden. For an absolute show stopper, light from the base and you’ll create an extravagant beam of golden wonder, projecting into the darkness. Phyllostachys Aureocaulis Spectabilis looks even more spectacular up against a building or wall and adds an unique oriental charm to any space. This plant grows into a rigidly upright structure which makes it perfect for creating a border to a driveway or creating your own, bespoke luxury screening to provide you with a little extra privacy. 'Spectabilis' is perfect for blocking out any unwanted sights or sounds.

Our bamboo plants are carefully packaged and will arrive in a specially made, extra thick, cardboard box with a clamp to hold the pot in place at the bottom of the box. This prevents any movement during transit, keeping your plant safe.

Planting bamboo is relatively simple but there are a few consideration to bare in mind.

Firstly, if planting spreading bamboo, you should consider taking steps to prevent unwanted running. Use bamboo control fabrics or plant in a container to keep your bamboo exactly where you want it.

Bamboo plants need a lot of water, so if planting in a container remember to water regularly, especially in the summer where they will need 2-3 soakings a week during dry spells.

They also consume a lot of nutrients to support their amazing growth rate. It is best to replenish the soil with fertiliser. Use a liquid seaweed or a slow release granular fertiliser once a year for potted bamboo and once every two years for bamboo planted in the ground.

To plant, simply dig a hole one and a half times the size of the rootball and drop the bamboo plant in. Backfill with soil, firm in place and ensure that the top of the rootball sits level with the top of the hole. Ideally you should mix in 1 part multi purpose compost per 3 parts soil to give the bamboo the best start in life. Water in well and ensure the soil does not dry out for a prolonged period during the first couple of months.

Bamboos thrive in moist, but well-drained soil in a sheltered, sunny spot. They tolerate most soil types, but will perform best in humus rich soils. Bamboo will grow in poor soils, but not in constant wet, boggy or extremely dry conditions. Protection from wind is advised, especially for younger plants.
