    When I was in the same situation, I offered it on Freecycle, and was able to give it all away to people who brought their own spades and dug up as much as they wanted.  I didn't have to do anything! Not saying it will work for you, but it's worth a try.  I was lucky in that mine was growing in a raised bed built of concrete, so it was just there and not all over the garden.  That bed is now a pond!

    My only input is that it grows sideways under the soil and is very tough o dig up

    I have planted a small bit of bamboo in my garden and its only 3 foot high and under control

    Think we need more info please Julia

    ? Do you like bamboo

    ? Do you want to place a bit in a medium sized pot to display

    ? How big is the area covered

    ? Would you consider spraying it with killer to clear the site

    ? What do you want to grow in its place
