Will bamboo grow new leaves
I'm gutted that a gardener seems to have destroyed my bamboo. It acted as a great screen from my neighbours and is well established (about 15 years) about 15 feet wide and 10 feet tall. I wanted him to take the weight off the tops, about a foot, and tidy it up slightly. Unfortunately he has used an electric hedge trimmer (!) and taken way too much off. Now it is extremely bare with hardly any leaves and you can see right through it.
He assures me it will grow back but my understanding is that we will have to wait for new shoots from ground level.
Does anyone know if the shoots that are left will grow new leaves?
Thanks in advance, I'm a little upset.
