How do I get my bamboo to grow new leaves

I had planted bamboo in pots down the side of my house a couple of years ago. After planting I got really dense leaf growth and also not long after new shoots. It covered the fence that it was sitting in front of. However now the bamboo is not growing new leaves or new shoots. Is there anyone I can do?

Hi Carol

Whilst it's a good idea to restrict bamboo, the pots may have proven to be too small in the long term. Bamboo do have quite extensive root systems and the big plants you have there will easily have filled the pots. I'm surprised that it hasn't pushed out of the bottom. They also need good water too. have you considered planting them out into the open ground where they can thrive. Kind regards Ben
