Bamboo in Distress
I just moved into a rented flat in Brighton, UK. The bamboo in the garden was tall and very bushy in the estate agent's photo, but now it's nearly all dead. Many have been cut away and many are brown: somebody didn't like bamboo. How can I get it to recover and how can I best cut the really tall stalks (i.e. above 5 ft) so as not to allow damp into them: i.e. across the stalk, at a sharp angle, or not at all? I show one "before" photo (the last one) and 3 from today. Kind regards, Carole
