Re: Phyllostachys Aurea - leaves turning brown

Are they in the shade next to the ? and what about watering them?
I understand they prefer open aspect - rather than sheltered
Also most container plants need some form of repotting occasionally - but I know this can be tricky with bamboo (as getting them out of pots is difficult)

Phyllostachys Aurea - leaves turning brown

Comment from Yvonne Hilliard

In forum: Phyllostachys aurea

Hi there

We have Phyllostachys Aurea bamboos in our patio garden. They are in individual containers all along our back wall. Unfortunately the leaves are turning brown and we are not sure why this is - any ideas or suggestions would be much appreciated

Kind regards

Re: Getting my bamboo to grow taller

Bamboo doesn't grow taller once it has reached its growth height for that year - you have to wait each year for the new shoots and these will grow taller and thicker. What you need to do is cut out the older shoots (which are usually the smallest and the thinnest - and found in the centre of the plant). This will give space for growing for the new culms. Also add fertilizer just before growing season (around April-May). You can add grass fertilizer - it works as well as bamboo fertilizer. A Phyllostachys Aurea should grow up to about 5m ... so definitely you have some hope.

Getting my bamboo to grow taller

Comment from Benjamin Brace

In forum: Phyllostachys aurea

Hi, I planted a couple of Phyllostachys aurea against a fence a couple of years ago and whilst one has most certainly gained some height (approx 500mm) the others don't seem to have grown any taller; does anyone have any advice on making them grow taller? Would thinning it out help at all? Should I just give it a good dollop of feed to give it a boost and hope for the best..?

Somewhere I have a vague recollection of a conversation I had where the advice was that you need to buy the bamboo as tall as you want it as it doesn't grow taller after, but can't find any advice anywhere that says that... any help would be marvellous :)

Hi Kathy,
Sorry about all the typo's in my original posting! Thanks for your reply and the species we are talking about is Phyllostachys aurea. The area it is planted is in partial shade and well drained, there is a fir tree nearby so maybe that is soaking all the water away from the bamboo?
Thanks, Michael

Acer 'Bloodgood'

General post from Mark Pumphrey

In forum: Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood'

This purple foliaged maple will reach 3 m high with a comperable spread. The foliage is a darker colour compared to Acer palmatum 'Atropureum' whose foliage is a dirty red green. The foliage will burn in an exposed location so find a sheltered spot. With such a dark coloured foliage it will lend itself to being planted next to golden bamboos Phyllostachys aurea and variegated foliage plants such as Pittosporum Garnettii and Rhamnus 'Argenteovariegata'.
