I thought about growing a bamboo patch but common sense got the best of me and I abandoned the idea.

Here is everything you need to know about growing bamboo.

The man knows his bamboo and is certainly passionate about it.

I found it interesting both as a farmer and a user of bamboo

Darin, there is a bamboo farm in Greenhill that has hundreds of species. I thought about buying some Japanese arrow bamboo from them and starting a patch but I don't make many arrows nowadays because I have hundreds and don't need any more.
