    Lol, not exactly what I was looking for :whistling:

    Sorry, can't help with seeds. I was given a bamboo plant by a neighbour and she just told me to keep it in a pot as they can take over otherwise.
    Had it a few years now, very hardy, don't need to do anything to take care of it:)

    you can plant bamboo in your garden - usually used for screenng - get different colours

    google - how to grow bamboo from seed - if you are successful - good on ya:thumbsup:

    Must admit one of my neighbours has one much to annoyance of his neighbour as it's spreading into her garden too so potting it wud b a gud idea x

    OMG!:w00t: Not the dreaded Bamboo, :w00t: When it gets really big it overtakes ur garden! Nobody will ever see you again:w00t:

    Lol, I have bought the bamboo for a reason :whistling:

    i've got 3 bamboo plants in my garden which were there when i moved in 4 years ago, seem to be growing upwards rather than outwards so you should be ok, failing that get a panda as a pet to eat it if it grows too big, lol

    Lol, I'll keep that in mind when my bamboo's taken over my life!

    nah like i said you should be fine, i think it depends on the variety, i have 3 different kinds (god knows what they're called) and two seem to be getting tall and not spreading out at all and the other one is small and bushy and staying the same size

    [FONT="Century Gothic"][FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="2"][COLOR="Purple"]Yes - lots of different varieties, some spread, some don't - start them off in pots and see how you get on, but they'll probably take a while to germinate! Good luck.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][/FONT]

    I have bamboo - not grown from seed, took an off-shoot from existing plant when I moved house - and it grows UP and OUT! Stayed small and bushy for quite a long time, though; then once it got itself fully established, it started its takeover.

    So watch out!!! :w00t:
