Mulching solid bamboo

Bamboo is a woody grass and it's roots and rhizomes benefit greatly with a top dressing of mulch. Rhizomes are naturally attracted to loose topsoil and thrives when mulch is applied. Applying mulch to bamboo also has many great advantages. Depending on the material used, mulch can also help recycle nutrients back into the soil. Some suitable mulch material can be bark or leaf mulch, grass, manure, compost, chipped wood and sawdust.

Typically, 2" - 6" (5 - 15cm) of mulch is suffice for bamboo grown in the ground. In areas with severe cold weathers, a 12" (30cm) deep layer of mulch is useful.

In it's natural environment, fallen bamboo leaves create natural mulch. The decomposing leaves also recycle useful nutrients, such as Nitrogen and Silica back into the soil.
