Divide bamboo

Bamboos like Phyllostachys bissettii can eventually outgrow their allotted space - this is a vigorous form with lush evergreen foliage and tall canes, sometimes to 3m, and it will run if you don't keep the rhizomes contained by a barrier. Early spring is a good time to divide a bamboo, cutting back the old canes ready for the new growth to get started   - make sure if you pot up sections that they don't dry out.
