When bamboo is grown as a screen to shut out unwanted views or as a windbreak be vigilant for any wandering tendencies and chop out stems appearing out of line. You can control the height of the screen effectively with shears.
Planted in a good sized container they work well as container plants especially if the canes are thinned out to allow gentle movement. If it starts to get too large for the pot take it out and use an old saw to halve or quarter it then pot-up the divisions into fresh compost. Do remember to liquid feed regularly.
Don’t waste the canes you cut out. Trim off the leaves into the compost heap and leave the canes to dry and use them to support the likes of sweet peas and runner beans.
