Seeds, Rhizomes, Wood-working, etc.
I have a few questions about bamboo. I bought 2 varieties of bamboo, both in seeds on ebay. I bought the moso and the nigra seeds. I am going to germinate them. When do I put them in the ground outside? I live in zone 7 and we get some snowy winters, will they be able to survive? Or should I make them a houseplant until about _______? Another question is, I am growing bamboo to teach myself another trade per se. I want to do wood working. When will the bamboo be big enough to chop down a few canes and start building with? I heard it could take a couple years.. if that is the case then, where can I buy some live rhizomes?
