Trevor Tips and Facts
* At Bamboo Landscape Plants you can find a wide range of exotic bamboo. You will be able to find different types of plants not available anywhere else and expert advice from passionate and knowledgeable staff.
* The placing of the plants is very important, Trevor plants bamboo where they can be best-appreciated and beautiful canes strategically placed for a maximum tropical effect.
* If you’re planting tropical style gardens, use plants that are waterwise, bamboos can be very drought tolerant. However a little soil additive such as, water storage crystals before planting can be very helpful and mulch, always at least thick 100mm layer of mulch is critical for water conservation.
