Sue Says
If your bamboo has now reached maturity then it should start producing more and more of the fabulous black canes as each year passes. Thinning out a moderate amount of the new growth will not damage the plant, but take care to select which canes to remove – individual canes will not regrow once they have been cut back. Cut back selected growth at ground level and apply a mulch of well rotted manure to the base of the bamboo to provide nutrients and help retain water in the soil.
