I am a lover of bamboo and have it growing against a fence and it is quite invasive and need to know if it will grow well in plastic buckets, I have so much of it I can not afford to buy flower pots. Let me know what you think...

As long as the buckets have adequate drainage holes, the bamboo will be just fine. Use a drill to make holes in the bottoms of the buckets, as well as holes along the sides, near the bottom, about an inch apart.

Best wishes with your bamboo!
