Last month I had the treat of visiting Alan Lorence at his garden in West County. Alan must have 50+ varieties of bamboo and hundreds of other plants. Early this year you may remember he came to my old house to help me contain my bamboo. I went to his home garden to see what varieties I want for my new house.  I think with the Asian feeling of my property, bamboo will be at home.  I just need a plan to contain and maintain it. Warning!  You just can not plant running bamboo and not tend to it.
