Hi I am looking for a supplier of bamboo fence screening of a good quality and ideally black bamboo...I have seen it on some sites but the price is 70.00 for 2m x 2m, Do any of you know of a cheaper one by any chance?

  • Bamboo can be stained black with manganese. May I suggest to buy a golden bamboo screen and staining it?

    I had P. Nigra in my garden for about 10 years and it never got more than about 60cm in diameter.

    I think Denise is looking for this sort of bamboo http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/1/7/6/8/0/7/0/webimg/668807702_o.jpg

    unlikely to spread no matter where 'planted' image

    Think there was a sort of 'focus' on growing bamboo on Sunday evening Tetley, so an easy mistake to make image

    Maybe you could get the pale stuff and use a dark shade of cuprinol (other wood stains are available)on it.
