Discuss Fargesia murielae 'Simba' (Bamboo 'Simba') with other Shoot members.
I reveived a Fargesia in June and have potted it in a large container - however it's looking like a lot of the stems have dried out and died. If I remove all the dead stems will it encourage new growth and begin to look healthier or will it remain sparse?
I intend to use this species in containers for the purpose of screening from the neighbours on my deck. If I require this screen to cover a 5 metre strech then how many containers will i have to plant up?
