    Last fall I planted several japanese timber bamboo plants that were well rooted in 1 gal. pots. They've survived the winter with minimal leaf burn. Now I've decided to sell a portion of our property and wanted to keep these plants. Would it be ok to transplant them to a new location or would that kill them? Could the rhizome of grown over the winter? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Running bamboo, as a whole, grow the bottom in Winter, the top in Spring. You can absolutely dig them, but plan on pulling seven gallon-sized plugs for safety's sake, as opposed to the one gallons you planted. That's pretty much your best bet for saving any new growth, and having new shoots come the next few weeks. Not sure where you're at, but the runners I grow have all started shooting already.
