Christopher Lloyd said to be sure to buy in bamboo canes from abroad, , as British ones do not ripen sufficiently. (The Well Tempered Garden, 1970)Maybe climate change since has altered this for those who live in southern areas,
if I can avoid them spreading.

Thanks for that information, very interesting. I'm in one of the sunniest parts of the uk, on the south coast, so I might be lucky. His garden isn't too far from me though. It might still be worth trying, if I can avoid them spreading.
Even then they may escape.
Honestly, it's really not worth it, unless possibly in a concrete pot or some such thing.
And we didn't even get any useful canes. They were all bent and misshapen.
