This is a new timber planter, constructed on site to form an increase in the planting area of this courtyard garden. It is built from solid Iroko planks, as used in the boatbuilding industry.
It has been designed to come apart easily at the front panel to allow for easy future access, enabling root pruning as the bamboos spread. We will carry this biennially.
The plants used were Phyllostachys aureosulcata 'Spectabilis, these will be stripped up to about 1.5m as the new shoots develop. They will grow up to 5m high,and i cant wait to see this, but a little patience is required.
