Basics of Bamboo
with Ian Connor
of Connor Bamboo

There is nothing like bamboo for grace and poetry year-round, but it can also be a point of contention with the neighbors if you do not control it appropriately. Ian Connor is a true expert in bamboo and we love to hear him share his knowledge of and enthusiasm for these mammoth grasses. This class is a must if you want to plant bamboo or just want to learn more about its diversity and habits.
