Now one of the most important stages in the bamboo growing process, the actual planting. Start by using some manure or compost to nourish the soil where you’ll plant your bamboo. The best time to accomplish this is when you’re digging out the drainage holes.
Insert the bamboo into the hole and ensure that the top of its root mass is on the same level as the top of your soil. You should dig a hole that is about twice as wide as the roots of your bamboo.
Use the remaining compost to nourish the soil you use to refill the hole. This will ensure that you have proper drainage in the soil surrounding the roots and will even enrich the area with nutrients that your plants need to grow up healthy and strong. Finish the process off by laying down two or three inches of compost on top of the bamboo then give it some water.
