Potted Bamboo

13/05/2007 Bamboo

A little while ago I posted about a deceased climber from outside our bedroom. It's absence has been sorely missed if only for the extra privacy it provided. We have been wondering about how best to approach this space. At the same time we've been wondering what to do with a largish bowl that we'd used as a fish pond. Water restrictions and no rain have seen the water evaporate and the fish die from our pond. We loved our little fish pond. But it seems a little unrealistic during a drought. So we have decided to solve two problems by using the ex-fish pond for a bamboo plant. Bamboo is notriously invasive. We are hoping the bowl will keep it in check while giving it space to grow.
