Bamboo is a remarkable plant...with so many uses...and it grows very quickly in the right conditions.

We use the bamboo for screening (we have a neighbour who's a hoarder), for fuel, for biochar, for chicken fodder and poles for the garden. It generates heaps of leaf litter and I use that to make mulch and compost.

We have several Chinese dwarf bamboo in our soil pit...to provide shade and fodder for our laying chickens.
