Our garden design and principles
We are an eco friendly permaculture designed garden and Bamboo nursery. We use no pesticides or herbicides on our potted plants or in the 2 hectares of garden. For pest control and to turn the leaf litter we have over 100 Malay game chickens free ranging in the garden. Malay games are very quite birds. They can grow to almost 1 meter tall and 6 ½ Kilos in weight. The world’s largest chicken. We also use stable manure to mulch and feed our inground plants.
Bamboo is our passion
We are very passionate about our bamboo lifestyle here at bamboo whitsunday. We grow quality bambusa textilis gracilis (slender weavers) for hedging and screening for Sydney and Brisbane markets. Also growing 3 variety’s of bambusa nana (Thai silk bamboo) which has a big future as the superior bamboo for hedging and screening in subtropical and tropical zones in Australia. They also produce very sweet edible shoots. If you want to bring the beauty of a Thailand into your garden this is the one to have as a privacy screen or a stand alone ornamental.
Cultivating new bamboo variety’s
We also grow from the seeds of superior bamboos new cultivar’s by the thousands in hope of cultivating that new variety of bamboo that will have a future as a small erect hedging and screening bamboo for Sydney and Brisbane customers with privacy problems. We also have cross pollinated by hand some species of bamboo and cultivate some true bamboo hybrid’s. we will be releasing our new variety’s once we get the numbers up and they have shown there true form. Most of our new bamboo variety’s are over 9 years old and showing their true form and tolerance to the elements read more.
