Soil for Bamboo

I’ve bought a load of bamboo and some massive pots to put it in but I don’t know what soil to pot them in because I know FA about soil so I’m asking here.

A standard slightly acidic potting soil is what you need

Her indoors says “John Innes No3”

Bamboo is pretty indestructible, and very invasive if put directly into soil. As said above, a good mix of peat free compost and grit to enable good drainage, gravel, sand etc. You can pretty much forget about it and watch it grow.

Thanks all. I’ll post some results when it is established.

When it has grown properly we need a video of you with the ‘Old Bamboo’.
