Spring time is the growing season, and for us that means, chopping bamboo. It grows on our property and as many have heard it spreads like crazy and can grow 1 foot per week on average. It is a love hate relationship. It is lovely and sustainable and can be made into many things. It can be turned into flooring, counters, fibers, fabrics and much more. We are currently working on some new items in our collection using some of the bamboo we have growing. I have used it in our windows and studio for display. The fabric, along with hemp are coming into play as well.
The big negative for the garden is the invasion quality, it can take over your landscape.
