Bamboo in mixed garden bed?
Apologies if this has been asked before.
I am trying to create a bamboo screen/hedge by planting Textilis Gracilis in a narrow garden bed atop a retaining wall I have in my back yard. I plan on planting them at about a meter apart and hope that they will grow up to prevent my neighbours (2nd floor window) from looking down into my yard. The garden bed is about 25cm across by 1m deep. Question is can I also plant some other plants in the same bed? I was thinking about some Acacia Cognata as a dropping ground cover some of the side of the retaining wall. Will this work? Or does the bamboo need all of the garden bed to itself?
