All bamboo prefers to grow in the ground however the small varieties are better for containers as they don’t require the same amount of room to grow.

Bambusa multiplex – Golden Goddess

This is our most popular bamboo. Suitable for smaller gardens, decks and tight spaces, pots and planters. It provides screening up to 4m but is easily clipped into a shorter hedge if required. It is the best container choice because of its smaller habit.
