Why do the best bamboo shoots...
...always come up where they shouldn't?
My strategy of letting my Phyllostachys bissetii extend its rhizomes under the driveway...
...has gone a little awry. The idea was that longer rhizomes meant bigger culms...
...but I have to remember to rhizome prune along the back edge of the driveway.
It might be easier to just keep pruning before the rhizomes get under the concrete, but that's a decision for another day.
What, you don't arrange your bamboo shoots by size?
I love seeing bamboo shoots, even when they're coming up where I don't want them to. Love them!
