Phyllostachys Aurea - leaves turning brown

Comment from Yvonne Hilliard

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

Getting my bamboo to grow taller

Comment from Benjamin Brace

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 :)

Can I plant any bamboo about 1 foot away from ny side wall?

Question from Anita Sunder Rajan

My husband is very keen to plant bamboos a foot away from our patio. He has already prepared a 4'x1' pit for this. I am not convinced bamboo is the right choice to plant so near the house but he is convinced bamboo can be contained if it is a clump forming one and we have the right barriers.

Please help!!!

Thank you

Comment from Sarah Smith

PLease could someone tell me when is the best time to split this bamboo. P.a. It has outgrown its area and i would like to split it so i can create another screen with it elsewhere in the garden. Thanks
