Year 2: Clumping Bamboo

bamboo_year2

I planted this clumping bamboo last October.  It will now be on it’s 2nd year and there is little to no growth.  Maybe I should be happy that it’s not spreading too fast.  I am hoping it will just fill out this corner of the yard and not more.  But if any new growths does show up near the fence, it will have to be taken out asap.  Well at this rate, that might not be for a few more years.

To encourage it to grow and add more nutrients to the soil, I’ve decided to turn this area into my personal compost bin.  I’ve been tossing all the coffee grounds, banana peels, eggshells, etc, around the plant and covering it with grass clippings and dead leaves.  So maybe by spring it will start to give out some new growth.
