How to repot yellow bamboo?


By Elaine2

United Kingdom

My bamboo is potbound. Having cut away the old, original centre canes it is only growing new canes around the outside of the pot. Am I right to repot and cut away the original growth and root system..just repotting the newer canes each with its own roots?

On plant Phyllostachys aureosulcata



My RHS book says ' Divide in spring' - so you should maybe wait until then to split it. It also says to feed it monthly.with a balanced liquid fertiliser. Hope this helps.

15 Oct, 2007 sounds as though I have a few months of respite before I tackle it...thanks for that..much appreciated..
