Bamboo for privacy hedge and garden poles +

Hello,

The people that owned our farm prior to us, planted bamboo on the corner entrance to the property.

It comes from an historic farm in Cleveland. It grows to over twenty-five feet, and has formed a dense planting. It isn’t invasive, however, like some of the bamboo.

We sell clumps of 3-4 stalks of whatever size, as ‘dig your own’. We also sell single stalks of bamboo for various purposes.

Some people want them for bean poles for their gardens. Some use it as rustic curtain rods. John thinks that they’d make great old fashioned fishing poles–the kind with just a line hanging from the tip. One musician picked out stalks that were just so, to make flutes for sale.

We’ve had bamboo travel as far as Iowa, and as close as in the neighborhood.

Our bamboo does not get extremely wide in diameter. Probably an inch plus at the thickest.

We call it the “Bamboo Forest” and our daughter, Britta, has featured it in her Book about her blind dog, San. (San’s Adventures on Sleipnir Morgan Horse Farm, available in the Shop, on his website, and on Amazon.com).
