I thought that the Bamboo Giant property was absolutely fantastic! I was not planning on going, but I certainly am glad that I did. They have so many bamboos to choose from and the sales people were great. They taught me all about spreading vs. clumping bamboo so I could purchase the right kind. We bought 6 plants and the sales lady wrapped them up and loaded them into our SUV for us. They had some cool stuff made out of bamboo in the little gift shop too.
I think the next time I go, I'll wear some comfortable walking shoes so I can spend more time hiking around the property in the bamboo. I can't wait for my bamboo to get as large as some of theirs.
It was like an oasis in the middle of an agricultural area and I recommend it to anyone who loves plants - especially bamboo!

This is a neat place to visit to see various types of bamboo growing, but their customer service is lacking, and the quality and condition of the plants they have for sale leaves something to be desired.
