Q.

maintenance of outdoor bamboo

Zone huntingdon valley,pa 19006 outside of philadelphia,pa | Anonymous added on October 12, 2019 | Answered

we own a home that 30+ years ago we installed a small thicket of bamboo(3-4foot). it is now 60 foot long after trimming. Someone came to trim it down and cut it down and back. it now looks like just bamboo shafts. what would happen if I were to have it cut down to about a foot high, would it effect next years growth? Thanking you in advance.
