After a helpful and informative phone conversation with someone at New England Bamboo, I ordered a plant on Monday. It arrived Wednesday, beautifully packaged. These people love bamboo and really wanted to help me.

It is obvious in dealing with New England Bamboo that it is a first class professional operation. I have dealt with them on retail purchases for years. The plants and packaging are high quality and the staff is knowledgable and friendly. I think of them as the "cadillac" of bamboo suppliers. If you are serious about bamboo and want high quality plants, you will not go wrong with New England Bamboo.

I have purchased and planted two phyllostachis bissetti 'dwarf' plants. I received them promptly and in good condition, and they are doing well. The customer service staff was polite when they contacted me to explain that they were sold out of #3 pots, but I could get two #1s for the same price. No complaints.

I have dealt with New England Bamboo on two major projects and one small one. The large project necessitated the ordering of 200 plants, size 3. All the bamboo arrived on time, perfectly packed, from MA to NY. They were planted and are growing successfully. They were also planted in mid-summer, not a great time, but settled in well. Happy experience.

Project 2 was an ordering of extra large bamboo for a public installation. They gave us a break on shipping, plants were beautiful, well-packed, everything worked.

Third project a small brownstone back garden. Again Bamboo (P. "Harbin") arrived in mint condition, and is now growing happliy, sending up many new shoots in summer, which I ate!

Have worked with New England Bamboo on plant several orders. The plants are packed and shipped very well. Yes the plants are small but stabilized mail order plants are. The plants are label constantly and relatively correct*. So when you order 3 # 1 gallon of black bamboo you do not get 1 P nigra and 2 p nigra henon you get 3 # 1 containers of black bamboo. I have never had a plant die or be not a viable and reproductive division from New England Bamboo. Being a bambo person and understanding that hardiness is related to mass of plant and the conditions the plant is exposed to prior to establishment as a mature grove. Hardiness number are not accurate until you compare all factors to derive a hardiness number. Plus most rare plant have not had the time to grow into a grove or planting specium in the area so actually hardiness is not known.
There is a project to collect and measure bamboo data at
New England Bamboo is the best mail order bamboo on the east coast.
*Bamboo Id is not that constant and accurate, many plants on national display are
miss labeled, like several plants at Arnold Arboruretium. Many experts have disagee on many plants.

I live nearby and have done business with them, purchasing mostly grasses. I go to their nursery and am very impressed. They grow fantastic plants, are always helpful and courteous. Always neat, always well groomed. I highly recommend the company.
