Seattle Bamboo Transplanting Tips

Transplanting involves digging a large chunk of root ball out of the ground with the culms attached. The chunk could includes three or four healthy-looking culms.

A good size for the clump would be at least 1.5 feet in diameter unless you are potting, then under 18" in diameter. Bamboo rhizomes are tough but must not be allowed to dry out even for a few minutes. You may have to use a very sharp shovel, axe, or saw to separate the rhizomes and roots from the rest of the grove.

If you will be transferring the division by truck, then water the leaves and roots well and keep them moist and protected from the sun.
