Q.Bamboo transplant

Zone DG98JY South West Scotland | Anonymous added on September 3, 2020 | Answered

Moved house and took half an established bamboo plant. Could not replant until 4/5 weeks later but in a container with soil and watered. Not looking too good. Will it live?

I understand that bamboo is pretty much indestructible so your plant's chances are good. Unless the roots have died, it should perk up again once it's in the ground in satisfactory conditions. You should mulch around the base of the plant, keep it watered and make sure it doesn't get extreme heat exposure from the sun. There's no way to predict how it will do, but with the proper growing conditions and a little care, if it's still alive now, it should thrive. Give it some time.
