new to bamboo
I am new to bamboo and would like to plant some this year. We have a roof terrace and everything has to be in planters. I am starting to research which bamboo to plant but I want to know if anyone could tell me when the best time to plant would be? Also, I can plant them in smaller containers (about 1 1/2 ft x 1 1/2 x 1 1/2) which would allow me to take the bamboo out and divide it if needed. Would this be a better idea than (larger) planters? It is an older roof garden so there is a watering system and some shade.
