June 20, 2015 Bamboo 'Removal' Workshop 9am - 12 noon location - private residence - Northeast Austin

Learn the best way to remove bamboo. The June meeting of the Texas Bamboo Society will be at a private residence and we will be helping the owner remove some of the bamboo that is in her backyard. Plants will be available at no charge - just please bring dirt to refill any holes that are created in the yard when a plant is dug. There is only one species of bamboo at this location and it is Phyllostachys aurea (common name is Golden Bamboo). This is a running bamboo.

So if you would like to get some running bamboo starts or just learn the best control measures - bring some digging tools and learn the most effective way to control running bamboo...send email for location or call (512) 906-8250

Members and non-members are welcome. membership info
