The Q&A Archives: caring for bamboo

Question: What is the proper way to grow bamboo?

Answer: If you think of bamboo as just a giant variety of grass, you'll be able to take good care of it. Like turfgrass, bamboo thrives with plenty of sunshine, lots of water and occasional feeding. Clumping bamboos can be planted without concern about the roots taking off and invading gardens. Running bamboos should have barriers placed to keep the roots from growing out of control.
