Bamboos are one ofthe best wind instruments of the Garden orchestra, always moving, swishing and humming gently in the breeze. They will establish rapidly, and often determinedly. A very quick screen should you need one, you will need to learn that they have an ‘independent’ nature, and are not shy of exploring the surrounding area.Although the ultimate Panda snack, few animals feed on them in the UK so you will have to manage them as you would any other plant. You can contain the roots by planting them in large pots that have had the base removed, but eventually they will attempt to flee. Some bamboos such as the Pseudosasa are better behaved, so choose your bamboo to suit your needs carefully.Grasses are many and varied they come in all shapes and hues and form the back bone of the world we know today. Rice, wheat, barley, oats, and all other grains are from the grass family, they are environmentally advance and are still developing.Ornamental grass can be planted in pretty much any climate, so long as you choose the right plant for your climate and locality. They offer a lovely shape, soft movement and feeling of openness and freedom. The birds will feast on the seed heads of the Miscanthus and the Pampas Grass will remain strong and sturdy from St Ouen to Goose Green, there is a grass for every garden.
