Re: NE/Bamboo

I believe what he was referring to is the following -- saw it on a recent 
Gardening By the Yard episode.  

A 2 foot  or so deep narrow trench is dug around the area where the bamboo is 
to be planted.  The liner is inserted in the narrow trench and the sides of 
the liner are held up by pieces of rebar that are pounded into the trench at 
certain intervals.  The liner is overlapped, where it meets, by a foot or more 
and should be glued or taped together so that the rhizomes don't escape through 
an opening.

You can see what I'm talking about on this webpage:


It looks like an awful lot of work.

I totally agree Donna.  Would like to hear more from Jim, exactly how the 
nursery uses the liner, etc.   I have horsetail rush, pretty much equally as 
invasive as Bamboo, that was in a pot in the pond....it escaped!!  I have a 6 
metal edging around the pond.  I've been battling it ever since.
