Bamboo for Planters & Containers

This section contains bamboo which are suitable for growing in pots, containers and raised planters. The ones we have highlighted in this section are primarily the clumping forms (Fargesia varieties) of bamboo which are not such aggressive growers and therefore are happy contained in a sizable pot for a number of years. It is advisable to re-pot or pot up bamboo after 3 or 4 years in a pot.

Generally most bamboo can be kept in a planter, pot, container however they will not last indefinitely and will require repotting after a few years depending on the size of container they are planted into.
