Q.How Do I Stake Tall, Bending Bamboo Plants?

Zone 9 | daphnek added on July 15, 2013 | Answered

The bamboo plants are overhanging our garden pond now and they are bent. Last year, regular staking techniques caused them to break off at the stake site during a blizzard. I am in Massachusetts. TY

If the bamboo were mine, I'd remove the offending canes. If snow bends other canes, remove them in spring. Bamboo usually isn't staked.
