Hi! This is Yolanda Vanveen on behalf of Expert Village. In this series, we've talked all about bamboo. Its uses in history. It's been around for 7000 years. We've talked about how to divide it using scissors or a power drill. We've talked about the differences between the clumping varieties that are not invasive, they multiply real slowly, or the invasive varieties, which are the runners that you have to contain when they're in your garden. You don't want them to just go wild and take over. We've realized that lucky bamboo is really not even a bamboo. Who would have thought that one? And that it can only grow in the house because it can't get cold. Bamboo can be used to cover a wall. It can be used as fence. It can be used in containers, or it can be used in the garden. Anywhere it's used, it's delightful. It will add an exotic look to your garden that you'll enjoy everyday of your life. Thanks for watching this segment on bamboo.
