Plant Info

Bamboos can often strike fear into the heart of gardeners, as some are invasive, but fear not, this little bamboo is a very well behaved garden guest.

Fargesia is one of the best types, as it is short, and has many small canes, and a much more delicate appearance than more thuggish members of the family. In fact. it's juicy new shoots are the stuff Pandas dream of!
A relatively newly introduced dwarf bamboo, it produces masses of new culms (as the new shoots are called), which have a rusty tinge. They then green up, and unfurl masses of tiny thin green leaves, which are evergreen so last all year round. The canes are very slender and thin, so they gently arch over, hence it's common name of 'Fountain Bamboo'.

They are spectacular in big pots on the patio, and an ideal bamboo for small gardens. They also form a neat, dense and easy-care non-trim hedge, reaching 2M and no more over many years. Just don't let them dry out in hot, dry Summers that's all, otherwise they require almost no care at all - what could be simpler?

Plant them where the sun can shine through the canes, or where you can see or hear the breeze gently wafting and rustling through all year - a very sensual plant indeed!

-- Service rating : Prior to joining the "club" I was always really pleased with the trees sent that but this order was incredibly disappointing. It's not the service it was the products.
Product : Not at all as in the picture. They are just long normal bamboos. Not the Fountain you are talking about. They are just long normal bamboos. Not the fountain you described. Very disappointing

++ Service rating : Packaging for delicate plants was excellent. Instructions were excellent.
Product : Cant wait for the summer to show these pretty plants off.
-- Service rating : After a long conversation & bad customer service; as most of my order was picked wrongly by the nursery & squashed into a very small box leaving the plants crushed & broken. I was told that I hadn't understood what I had ordered & that I was basically wrong. I then had an email where they did refund due to the damage caused by the packing so overall they have tried to put it right & will try again with them.
Product : I am awaiting to see if they perk up but they arrived crushed due to very bad packing by the nursery/supplier. This rating is solely due to the packing issue
++ Service rating : Excellent delivery fast and speedy
Product : Good plants very pleased
