Untamed Bamboo


Martymoose64 added on April 17, 2017 | Answered

We've inherited a mature garden which includes bamboo having been planted amongst trees and pollinator bushes. I don't want to run the risk of chemicals (unless I have to) for fear of damaging the other shrubs and trees in close proximity. What is the best way to eradicate the bamboo without damaging everything else?
