Testimonials

Gracilis

"Our Gracilis started out as very small 200mm pots which Grant thought would never survive let alone thrive to this degree! He estimates them to be about 5mtrs already with about 50 culms. It just goes to show that good ground preparation is the key! We have had the bamboo planted in the ground for about 18 months and they have grown so much!" - Diane and Grant

Chinese Dwarf

"We purchased 5 x 200mm pots of Chinese Dwarf bamboo and planted them in our raised garden bed in October 25. We followed the planting guide and added mushroom compost mixed through the original soil, we watered every day during the sweltering summer and fertilised with our bamboo blend fertiliser every 3 months. After only FIVE months, we are pretty happy with the results!!" (Note how little the plants on the left hand side have grown in comparison!) - Kristie and Joe

Gracilis

"My husband and I were wanting to hide the view and noise from the house behind us, and decided a living fence was the answer. We were advised by many people to only buy from a reputable bamboo specialist. We went out and viewed Bamboo Down Under's stock and lovely grounds, and the staff were REALLY HELPFUL. We planted the Gracilis in December, strictly following the planting guide instructions, and literally watched them grow. We are located in Ipswich, the plants face the full western sun and get beaten around with wind and frost. They are so resilient and easy to care for, and they have blocked our horrid view!" The after photo is taken in November two years later. - Suzanne and Phillip

Goldstripe

"I purchased some bamboo around 8 months ago for my investment property at Broadbeach. I wanted to screen the neighbours ugly property fast! I was given a great deal for my budget and happily went off to start planting. I can't believe how much they have grown in just 8 months! The staff at Bamboo Down Under were fantastic to deal with. I often go back to visit just to wander around the bamboo forests. I love it there." - Robyn

Boniopsis

"We needed a new fence put in which meant a whole lot of unsightly metal fencing in our outdoor area. A trip to Bamboo Down Under got us talking to one of your staff members and resulted in a few pots of Boniopsis being placed in our car! With organic soil, doses of bamboo pellet fertiliser and seasol, our whole outdoor area has been transformed into a lush, relaxing environment with little sign of the existing metal fence behind it! It has also created a great screen to keep the neighbours hidden! We love how quickly it grew and how easy it is to care for.  It is still thriving after 2 years since planting with very little attention from us." - Mags and Rod

Chinese Dwarf

"The staff member that helped us pick out the right type of bamboo and told us how to care for it was fantastic, and you can see our little hedge has come along very nicely, soon you will not be able to see the road at all! The first photo was taken on the 30th August and the second on 17th March - just 6 months difference! I hope you can use these photos to show customers how quick these little plants grow and how great they look!" - Kit and Daniel

Timor Black

The Timor Black was planted in January and just two years later, the results are incredible! 
This bamboo was planted in a 2m wide hole with lots of soil preparation; forming an ideal position for the beautiful bamboo to flourish. This Timor Black is still growing to its full size and could be trimmed down in height, or trimmed out to expose the coloured culms if desired. - Michael
