#1: Plant Bamboo in a barrel planter?

Posted on 2006-05-30 00:08:20 by Kentucky Barrels

I am new to bamboo. I would like to know if it is possible to plant it
in a half whiskey barrel planter. It is 24 inches in diameter at the
top, 21 inches in diameter at the bottom and 18 inches deep. I am
thinking this would prevent it from spreading.

Only for awhile. Best to get barrier from a garden center or a
boo seller near you. Sources can be found at

It is common to plant bamboo in containers. Containerised bamboo is
considered a very fashionable accessory in your garden here in
Britain.
For example, here is an article on it:
<a href="http://www.mjbanks.co.uk/containers.htm" target="_blank">http://www.mjbanks.co.uk/containers.htm</a>
They are more work than bamboos grown in the ground. Some varieties
are more suitable than others.

If you were thinking of sinking the wooden barrel into the ground as
long term containment for bamboo in a shrub border, that probably
wouldn't be the best way of doing it.

Figure on an above the ground container taking temeratures 20 degrees
colder than the rhizomes in the ground come winter.
In other words winterkill is more likely in a container unless you
protect it somehow.
