Growing Alphonse Karr Bamboo in Florida
We live in central Florida, basically on the edge of a swamp.
We talked to a guy that is selling bamboo. We are going to have some delivered. They are Alphonse Karr about 6' tall and look healthy.
We want to plant them next to our fence to make a taller screen. He said to plant them 6' apart, and that they were ok with having wet feet. I need to know how far I should keep them from the wooden privacy fence, and are they going to tolerate the summer soggy ground here in the rainforest they call the sunshine state.
he is also bringing us one Oldhamii we are going to plant in a similar area.
Any words of wisdom from those that aren't trying to sell us bamboo?
I don't want to spend all the money to kill them.
