Question: Bamboo

A few bamboo plants planted in my garden have created such vegetation that it is no longer possible to control it, I would like to know if there is a method for dying the roots.

Thanks for your help.

Bambu: Answer: Bambщ

Dear Angelo,

Thank you for contacting us about your problem with the plant

of bamboo, through the section of the Expert of Gardening.it

The BAMBOO plant belongs to the BAMBUSA family which includes numerous species (over 600), some cultivated for ornamental purposes. The plant is characterized by a typical stem of grasses (such as wheat, corn and rice), of various colors, composed of cylindrical knots and internodes (cables) from which the shoots and leaves originate.

Plants can reach various heights, from 1.5 meters of dwarf varieties to over 20-30 of giant varieties. The leaves are lanceolate, with an intense green color. The roots are underground, rhizomes, with a wide diffusion capacity towards the sources of humidity.

If you intend to maintain an area of ​​your garden with a few more Plants, we recommend that you try to create humid areas in the opposite direction to that of the "invasion", cut the rhizomes and abundantly water the part of the garden dedicated to this plant. In the most drastic case it is possible to resort to the use of localized graminicides (remember that it is a plant

resistant graminacea such as bermuda grass) which, however, do not adversely affect the grassy surface. In case you want to do a TOTAL weeding (it would also dry the lawn)

we recommend Glyphosate.

Yours sincerely.
