Phyllostachys aureosulcata 'Aureocaulis' is arguably the most adaptable and impressive of all golden-caned bamboos. Must use root barrier if planting in the ground, and requires copious moisture to establish and thrive. It retains the robust nature and features of the species, with its wind-tolerance, exceptional hardiness, zig-zag lower growth pattern, beautifully striped emerging culm sheaths etc. But adds into the mix bright golden culms that, when positioned in good sunlight, are tinged with red. Without doubt this is one of the finest bamboos for the garden.

GENERAL CARE

Bamboos can be grown almost anywhere, but avoid excessively windy locations. Many can be grown in sun or shade (sun is usually best for colour).Bamboos are generally shallow rooted and prefer a rich, moisture retentive, organic soil. 

PLANTING

Before planting out, the roots should be soaked in water for some time, and after planting it is important that the plant is watered well.

Hardy species of bamboo which were grown in pots can be planted anytime during the year, except in frozen ground.

Outdoor plants pot sizes
Outdoor plants pot sizes

With items such as ferns, juvenile tree ferns and herbaceous plants it is difficult to give the exact size of each species when such a wide range of plants are grown so we specify standard pot sizes to give an indication of the size and/or age of the plant you are buying.

Sometimes the pot size might vary slightly from the standard or we might listed as 2-3 litre pot, depending on the growers we purchased them from. However, the sizes of the plants are similar in height and spread.

Sometimes the plants might be photographed in decorative pots. However, please bear in mind that our plants are kept in plastic nursery pots.

Plants measurements
Plant measurements

For the outdoor plants, that are meant to be planted in the ground, the height of the pot is excluded from the measurement. The height is measured from the top of the pot to the tallest leaf or branch of the plant.

All plants are measured when brought to our nursery, however, due to natural factors, the actual size of the plant might change over time due to adjustments to the environment. When picking multiple plants for an order, we aim to pick matching plants.

Plant warranties
WARRANTIES

We can guarantee that the plants leave our nursery disease free, but weather and local conditions might affect their survival. Make sure you always make an informed purchasing decision.

The plants that leave our nursery are in the best condition, free of disease. Kept in adequate conditions (positioning and care), the plants are guaranteed for 3 months if they are planted in the ground or one year if they are kept in their original pots. Return policy applies only to plants that are in their original pots.

Lovely bamboo

Bought 2 of these in 2 different orders. 1st one arrived well packed and appears to be thriving - lovely bamboo.<br /> The 2nd was packaged in a way that the taller canes were bent over and as a result three of them snapped - I lost the lovely height I had wanted and will have to wait for further growth. Again - a lovely bamboo - will just have to wait a bit longer than I'd hoped for more height.

Magnificent specimens.

Couldn't be happier with the new plants. I've used TPC a couple of times now and I remain impressed. Literally my only gripe is the lack of prior notice that the order has been despatched. It would be helpful to be in when they are delivered but you only get told on the day its out for delivery.

Very pleased

Whilst the plant was a little late arriving due to the pandemic, the overall experience was first class. I bought this for my daughters birthday, she was very pleased, thank you.

Lightning delivery

Incredibly fast delivery and very good value.<br /> The bamboo was packed well and seemed to be healthy but it must be said that many of the leaves were marked at the tips as if distressed or short of water ( see attached photo)<br /> The roots in the pot were so well established that I could not get the plant out and had to carefully cut the pot away, I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not.<br /> <br /> Now planted the bamboo seems to be doing ok, the stems are tall but thin and have some difficulty in standing straight but I expect the plant to quickly establish and produce new more robust upright canes soon.<br /> <br /> Update!<br /> Less than two weeks from delivery and there are six new strong, thick and healthy looking shoots.<br /> These are nearly twice as thick as the originals.<br /> Looks like growth will be almost as fast as The palm Centre's delivery.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />

The plant arrived promptly, well packaged, in good condition. Very tall, healthy, with green foliage. I planted it in March , and in May my Bamboo produced more than 20 new shoots. Used bamboo fertilizer from this store. Very pleased with my purchase. Thank you.
