Can i sell my bamboo?

kevingalaxyJune 15, 2009

I have a section 6 x 25 foot of bamboo, i think most of it is black bamboo but some of it is green as well, anyone know if i can sell it? I am thinking of getting rid of it.

Black bamboo comes up green, so maybe it's all black. You could dig up divisions, pot them up, take care of them for several months to see if they survive, and then put an ad in the paper or on Craigslist, to see if you have any takers. Or you could advertise for people to dig their own for a small fee, but bamboo is difficult to dig if you aren't experienced, so this could be an unsatisfactory approach. Lastly, if you just want to get rid of it, and it's disease-free (especially no bamboo mites), you might be able to get a bamboo nursery to remove it all for free. In any case, I suspect that trying to sell off this grove is not going to be a big moneymaker.

Hi Kevin,

I'd suggest letting people come dig it up. Black bamboo seems to be pretty popular and many people are looking for it. I'd definitely dig some up next spring if you still want to get rid of it.

Hello, I have a small bunch of Golden Groove Bamboo. I am very much interested in hearing what you have to say about selling your bamboo. I am sure you can sell it with out any problem, and Craigslist is a good spot, but let me know what you are going to do as I'm interested too. thanks
