Bamboo plantation Fargesia nitida Nymphenburg
All Fargesia grow much better in soil rich in humus and rich in nutrients. If soils are poor, sandy and very loamy, soils need to be improved. Mix as follows:
If the earth is clay:
Keep 33% of the earth in place.
add 33% peat (preferably blonde) or red sand.
add 33% good quality potting soil.
If the land is sandy:
Keep 50% of the earth in place
Make a contribution of good quality potting soil up to 50%
The addition of clay granules (seramis or pumice) greatly increases the storage of water. Then do not forget to fertilize with bamboo fertilizer. (preferably nitrogen rich).
