    are there members with "overgrown or excess" bamboo they would like to share or can offer at a reasonable cost? lets pay it forward if we can as karma's a *itch sometimes.

    I have black bamboo you can have if you remove it properly (aka take it ALL, all root systems etc).

    Hi Mike, I sold some black bamboo a few months ago and will have another grouping in about a week -not sure if it will be black or not as I still have to dig the section up. It is beautiful bamboo that I've had to take out just because the original owner just planted it in the ground the way it came (ugh). Message me if you're interested - it will be trenched and ready to go but quite heavy so it will need more than one person to move.

    I don't know why I get this reply. Mine is FREE I am not running a business. Sharing recycling upcycling is my thing. I will NOT want to give it to someone who will sell it again ...this forum should not allow SALE adds

    Sorry - I don't know why but the system sent me MIKE'S above message. No one is out to make money off you, that doesn't even make sense based on what was written above. The original poster asks about reasonable bamboo costs and my replace was a mistake. Let's move on.

    When you posted to the thread on Thurs 5:57pm , you subscribed to all future updates within it. This has been the way the software works since we started. Also, when you posted, you activated the thread again, so @Jessicasilver received a notification that there was activity, and she then posted again... anyway, original poster requested something at a reasonable cost, so it is permissible for someone to reply and offer something at a reasonable cost.
