This plan prolly looks aloof, but I'm hoping for good things! Looking back on it, it seems a bit ill-conceived! I wanted to do this on the very cheap. Ok, heres what I used.. kitty litter jugs!
I think they'll likely be root-bound the second year. They are Phyllostachys bissettii Bamboos.
I plan to keep the Bamboos trimmed to 4 - 8 feet in height, if they even grow. I'd like to keep them trimmed to put less demand on the roots.
I should prolly be throttled about the face and neck, but I think I had to make a choice on how to do this cheap! It was either dig a deep trench, without any barrier, and gosh help us (and the neighbors) in about 2 years, or try to do something to contain, very cheap. I can take criticism!
Fyi, I drilled many drain-holes and Bissettii is supposed to be hardy to -15 F. And there is 7 cats here!
