When we moved in 7 years ago, we planted some golden bamboo. We dug two holes, lined them with plastic film and made a concrete “collar” around them.
That had kept it contained until this spring, when it escaped. The escapees are much bigger than the parent plants.
- Why did it escape? I thought the roots spread under ground, so the concrete should have stopped it, right?
- Hubby wants to use Roundup™ on the escapees. Will the Roundup kill any of it, the whole stand, or just the escapees?
- If we can’t control it, will it hurt the foundation of our house? It’s about three feet away from the house now.
- Any one want some bamboo?
