Bamboos - We propagate
small plants suitable for mail order and these are either sent
bare-rooted by express mail or sometimes in pots sent by courier.
We aslo also dig and divide mature clumps in
the spring & early summer. These supply large propagules that will establish
faster than small. They are usually sold as single culm divisions and
are more expensive, cost more to transport and need to be picked up
or shipped soon after digging so some planning is necessary. However
the advantage is they do establish much faster. As the Chinese saying
goes, "a bamboo that one man can carry will take 10 years to mature
and a bamboo that 10 men can carry will take 1 year to establish". Large
field grown divisions are available between August & early December.
Plantation quantities are available.
Gingers and Aquatics
- These are generally best purchased during winter dormancy or at the
beginning of spring which here corresponds to the period August to November
and at the latest by the end of the year.
We do not send to WA & Tas but
we can now send Water Chestnuts to Tasmania with appropriate
notifications. Just email me for instructions.
