Bamboo and Herbs
In my drive to become more self reliant, I fancied growing my own bamboo canes for the garden, I settled for Fargesia Nitida Great Wall Bamboo, it grows about 4m tall and spread is about 150cm, I thought it would make a nice wind brake as well as I know there are a few exposed areas were we plan to live.
My young plants arrived today
I got three plants for £19.99 from the Hot Plant company, very well package and about 1m tall
The herb seeds I sowed the other week are making good progress and germination has been good
These are all to replace those we will be leaving behind in the herb garden, I do like using herbs and the annual ones I dry out so I can use them out of season.
I am looking forward to starting a new herb garden.
