Pompano Beach Bamboo Wholesale
As premier bamboo farmers in Southwest Florida, Palmco grows bamboo for the wholesale market.
The same high standards we use to grow palms are the same exceptional standards we use to grow bamboo.
As bamboo grows in popularity, we invite you to take a look at the Pompano Beach bamboo wholesale plants we have available for turning your landscape into a tropical paradise.
In addition to our customers throughout the contiguous United States and abroad, we proudly serve Pompano Beach and the surrounding communities, including Deerfield Beach, Coconut Creek, Margate, Oakland Park, Sunrise, and Lauderdale Lakes.
We can beautify your residential or commercial landscaping projects with both containerized bamboos and custom-dig plants.
We grow 16 varieties of clumping bamboos which are non-invasive, well-suited to the Florida climate, and are some of the most impressive bamboos in the world.
Many of our palm trees and bamboos can be used as focal points while others can be used to create symmetry or an asymmetrical dynamic quality within a commercial or residential landscape.
Once you purchase your new bamboo plants, we offer a few tips on caring for them:
Water newly planted bamboos a couple of times per week if the weather is mild, or three to four times if the weather is hot or windy. If the plant is smaller than the 5-gallon size, give it at least a half-gallon of water.
If larger, it should get at least one gallon. Water only for a few minutes and avoid watering every day or your bamboo may suffer from excess leaf drop. Too much water and lack of adequate water are the primary causes of poor growth or failure of new plants. It’s also important for the soil to drain well as bamboo does not like to stand in pools of water for long periods. Place mulch around the base of the plants to make sure they retain enough moisture.
Once your bamboo plants establish themselves, they will be far more tolerant of too much or too little water.
Staking Tall Plants
If you are planting bamboo that exceeds about 15 feet, you may need to stake the plant during the first year until its root mass gets established. By anchoring them down with stakes and rope, you will prevent them from being uprooted or damaged by strong wind.
Wood and bamboo stakes are usually sufficient, but you may need metal stakes to support very large bamboo. Fertilizing – Bamboos should be fertilized “a little and often” to encourage the best growth. Apply a small amount of slow or controlled-release fertilizer at planting. Plan to fertilize with a slow-release high-nitrogen fertilizer in early spring, a few times during the summer, and in the fall.
Avoid weed fertilizers; bamboo is a member of the grass family, so these fertilizers may cause the plant to die back.
Thinning or pruning your bamboo will help it maintain its upright growth and maintain the shape you want. If it’s getting too wide, prune a few outer canes as near to the ground as possible.
As you bamboo matures, you may also want to remove older culms (5 years or older) to give the plant a more youthful look.
Established 30 years ago on Pine Island, Florida, Palmco has 600-plus acres planted with the choicest palms and bamboos, ranging from the exotic and rare to the most common and abundant.
