I'm on with my design of my garden using the garden layout tool and I've today been to a couple of nurseries having a look round. We're looking to have a an adult seating area and are thinking of using bamboo as the backdrop. The cost of one plant at the height we'd ideally like is about £30 but a amsall one is half the price. Does any one know how much I can expect the plants to grow per year?? We'll need a few for the seating area we have in mind and at £30 a pop it would be rather expensive!
