How to plant Bamboo Gracilis as a Screen


Step 1
Choose a full sun or partial shade situation. Gracilis will grow fastest in full sun. If planting in a heavy shaded situation use large plants.

Step 2
Put 90% of your effort into preparing the soil you are planting into. Bamboo Gracilis will grow in most soil types.

Or plant into a well prepared bed of well drained rich media. A bed 100cm wide x 40cm deep with adequate irrigation is a standard size used to grow a gracilis privacy screen. A bed 50cm wide will need to be deeper than 60cm to give the roots more room.

Plant your bamboos at 1 to 1.5 meter spacings to form a graceful erect bamboo screen.

Step 4
Feed them a slow release lawn fertilizer for rapid growth. Water them in well and mulch.

Step 5
If you are lost when it comes to gardening.
