Keeping a colony within bounds
I have2 varieties of clumping bamboo. They were divisions from a very nice gardenweb member from this forum. However, I want to grow a grove of running bamboo, mostly for the resulting culms. I know I can buy the rods, but they are not cost prohibitive. I have dedicated most of my yard to trees. I want to be able to control the grove. If I try a pond ( Poly ) container like from Lowes/ Home depot, will that be strong enough to control growth for a year or 2?
