ann kennedy asked 12 years ago

I dug a large bamboo from a garden, it became waterlogged in a planter so put it into a bin bag, holes for drainage and placed on top of a raised bed, also tied bin bag round middle. still very wet and sodden, can i plant it into a wooden quarter barrel now with plenty of crock at bottom and add dry compost to prevent root rot.

Allow the roots to drain for a few hours, then plant it in the barrell with barely moist compost and water sparaingly until signs of growth next spring. No feeding until growth begins and then every two weeks until September.
