Care advice for Phyllostachys bissetii

As Phyllostachys bissetii is very fast-growing, it needs to be pruned regularly to prevent from spreading farther than desired. In the spring, unwanted or spindly canes should be cut down to ground level. New shoots of Green Bamboo should also be pruned once they grow taller than the rest of the hedge.
