Choose Bamboo Carefully to Avoid Spreaders
Thursday, 11 August 2011 13:46

Bamboo(Courtesy of AP) Gardeners often are bamboozled by bamboo, particularly the running kinds that are notorious spreaders.

Most of the clumping varieties can be contained, however, as they grow quickly into attractive specimen plants and screens. It is important to know the difference before you buy.

''Bamboo is really nice to look at, and it has a pleasant rustling sound in a breeze that reminds me of white noise,'' said Jeff Schalau, an agricultural and natural resources agent with University of Arizona Cooperative Extension at Prescott. ''It also is a great barrier plant if you want privacy or want to block something out.''

Growing Pride - Asian Zucchini Pancakes

Growing Pride - Asian Zucchini PancakesMy best friend’s mom strolled into her kitchen, her cheeks smudged with soil and her mouth curved into a contagious grin. Delicately cradled in her sun-bronzed and freckled arms was one of the largest zucchinis I had ever seen. We eagerly scurried to her, our bare feet making tapping sounds on the stained, brown linoleum. Alice, my friend’s mother, had decided to take up gardening that summer. Tall, dark trees surrounded her yard, allowing in very little sunlight. But, Alice had somehow managed to get permission from the City of Seattle to commandeer a neglected a plot of public land. She was never short on energy or ideas and spent many long afternoons digging and hoeing until eventually she had made a vegetable garden in that abandoned bit of dirt. By midsummer, the plants were green and robust and putting out their first fruits. My friend and I cooed over her massive squash and agreed with her that it certainly was large enough to win a ribbon at a county fair, though secretly, even at that age, I knew that big didn’t mean better when it came to zucchini.
