started growing bamboo in 1980 and joined The
American Bamboo Society (ABS) that same year. We helped
establish the Pacific Northwest Chapter of the society and have served on the
board of directors of both. Ned Jaquith, the late founder of Bamboo Garden, was elected
in 2006, as vice president of the
ABS and has been awarded Honorary Lifetime Membership due to over 25 years
of whole-hearted efforts and generous bamboo knowledge.
Ned Jaquith was one of the
most significant bamboo growers, collectors, and promoters of our time. In
addition to his amazing and diverse collection of bamboo, which evolved into
our 20-acre nursery, he was a generous with his knowledge and desire to
share with others. He had a great sense
of humor and goodwill. He will be greatly missed among bamboo lovers, the
horticultural community, and his friends and family. We are very fortunate
to be able to continue the nursery operation, Bamboo Garden, under the
guidance of Noah Bell and Ned's wife Nancy Oberschmidt, and provide the same level of service,
expertise, and enthusiasm for bamboo as our founder.
The nursery is
managed by Noah Bell, with over sixteen years experience working closely with
bamboo in the landscape and nursery trade, and managing Bamboo Garden since
2004. He is currently the President of the PNW Chapter of the American
Bamboo Society. His bamboo photos and
articles have been published by the ABS and German Bamboo Society (EBS), Paul Whitaker's book:
as well as
Bamboo by Susanne Lucas. He built our website as a bamboo
resource while working closely with Ned. He is responsible for overseeing the
production of about 300 different types of bamboo, maintaining our 20 acre nursery, and providing positive direction
for our staff.
Now with 18 people on our unique team, we take pride
in what we do and strive to produce the best plants and the best service in
our market. We are fortunate to have Penelope Costley, Niki Atterbury, Anna
Foleen, Peter Berglund, and Suhaila Abulhosn as our
bamboo consultants along with sales, marketing, and design staff.
Reveriano Ramirez, Isaias Ramirez, Teresa Lopez, and extended family have been
contributing their expertise to bamboo propagation, irrigation, and
field work, for over 15 years now and are the backbone of Bamboo Garden.
We specialize in hardy clumping species, as well as hardy giant timber
bamboos, and have been at the forefront of introducing new species into the
horticulture trade. See this link for our
total collection. and this page

have supplied bamboo for many large commercial landscaping projects including:
Tacoma Zoo, Portland Classical Chinese Garden, Portland Japanese Garden,
Oregon Zoo, Wellesley College in MA, Wayne Morse Courthouse in Eugene, OR,
Asia Trail of National Zoo in Washington DC, Shangri La Project in Vancouver,
BC, and many others. We work closely with
landscaping companies, providing healthy and beautiful bamboo for commercial
and residential landscapes,
locally and afar. Finally, a huge thank you to all of our customers, without
your support and continued business, this would not be possible...
Our largest project to date is the Asia Trail for the National Zoo in
Washington DC as designed by The Smithsonian. Between February and June we worked tirelessly to put together a massive collection of bamboo
meeting the criteria for this ambitious project. By mid June we had three, 53
foot semi trucks, packed full of our bamboo, ready to travel to Washington DC,
and be incorporated into the
It was a challenging, yet very rewarding task, working together among our
staff and with our customers, seeing the project (and bamboo) grow from start
to finish and achieving success in the landscape. The future looks bright for
bamboo and we hope to be considered a reliable source, from the smallest mail
order, to large-scale bamboo design, to other nurseries, and garden centers.

we believe in: cultivating a sustainable future.
Bamboo Garden is a specialty bamboo nursery and a bamboo arboretum.
We are experts in bamboo horticulture which mainly includes propagation,
cultivation, and consultation. Visitors looking to purchase bamboo as well as those seeking information
or study, are welcome to tour the acreage. We consider ourselves and our
nursery as a center of bamboo knowledge and expertise, and offer the
most diverse and complete selection of temperate bamboo species and
sizes in the United States. We are committed to maintaining our bamboo
collection in order to promote its versatility and beauty, to develop
interesting new cultivars of bamboo, and to continue to provide our
resource to those who seek it. Bamboo has a multitude of uses in our
environment. While offering a striking and ornamental addition to the
landscape, bamboo has also has unique potential for anyone who grows and
cares for it. On the most basic level, whether it be the occasional cane
harvested for a craft project, tender new shoot dug out of the soil
for culinary use, or a dense, living privacy screen, bamboo can provide its owner or steward with a
renewable source of utility and inspiration. Bamboo has a subtle but
profound effect on the way we interact with our daily world. On a larger
scale, bamboo has been recognized as a sustainable resource for the
economy and the environment, moving forward into an era of more health
Personal service and customer
satisfaction is our specialty. We strive to educate people so that they
grow and maintain bamboo effectively, responsibly, and proactively.
First and foremost to this goal is for our customers to make the
appropriate bamboo selection. Based on careful discussion of the project
at hand, we present the best bamboo choices for each customer. We always
put our customers needs first in this important process, and take the
time to answer all questions thoroughly and accurately. Secondly, we
teach growers what to expect from their bamboo in the years to follow.
Long term success with bamboo is our goal as much as it should be for
each new grower. Effective techniques for maintaining bamboo as the grove or
hedge matures, are discussed in detail. We lean on many years of
experience to assure that the best bamboo selection is made and hold our
service and plants to high standards of quality. We use organically
inclined methods of cultivation to produce our bamboo stock.
We support the American Bamboo Society, the
Oregon Association of Nurseries, and the Ned Jaquith Foundation, and The
International Plant Propagators Society. We donate bamboo to support
local schools and garden clubs in our community, as well as the Lan Su
Chinese Garden, and the Portland Japanese Garden for their annual plant
sales or display gardens. With respect to the late founder of Bamboo
Garden, Ned Jaquith, we invite and welcome all, and hope to inspire
visitors of our nursery and website; enter and explore the fascinating
world of bamboo!

Noah Bell and Bamboo Garden staff
A non-profit 501(c)(3) started by friends
and family of Ned and the American bamboo Society. NJF is dedicated to
supporting bamboo horticulture; research, knowledge, propagation, and art.
Bamboo Garden is very special. Founded in 1984, Bamboo Garden has a
diverse collection of more than 300 bamboo species and forms on 20
pastoral acres near North Plains, Oregon. Here, mature bamboo groves are
cast in a beautiful natural setting of rolling hills, ponds, mountain
stream, and wooded backdrop. Customers of the nursery are offered golf
cart tours of the extensive grounds.
Europe has a number of splendid bamboo gardens, and a few very famous
ones that are connected with a bamboo nursery, where one can see many
species of bamboo in mature natural groves and then have the opportunity
to purchase the same bamboos for one’s own garden. America now has an
equivalent in the Bamboo Garden.
Owner Ned Jaquith, an ardent bamboo enthusiast, has introduced
countless people to the world of bamboo and served as a mentor to
countless more---myself included. Nothing seems to please Ned more than
introducing another person to bamboo. His welcoming enthusiasm carries
through to the Bamboo Garden’s knowledgeable staff, who are adept at
discussing bamboos with experts and novices alike. Nursery manager Noah
Bell oversees the entire operation, including nursery, office, and sales.
Maintenance foreman Reveriano Ramirez directs the labor force, bamboo
propagation, and care. Bamboo Garden is an impressive operation with many
fine people in key roles working to make it so.
Like Bamboo Garden, the Bamboo Garden catalog is something special too.
The bamboos are beautifully photographed and described (Ned and Noah took
most of the photos themselves), with clear illustrations that show how to
maintain bamboo (credit to Charissa Brock for illustrations and layout
design). It is not only a catalog of bamboo, but an informative guide as
well. For anyone interested in bamboo, neither the Bamboo Garden nor the
Bamboo Garden catalog are to be missed.

~ Time-line ~
Ned moved to Portland, OR from southern California, bringing with him a
division of bamboo. Not knowing it was a tropical type, it perished over
the first winter.
Ned Jaquith began his life long interest in bamboo at a plant sale in
Pasedena, CA by the Friends of Huntington Garden, meeting then president
of the newly formed American Bamboo Society, Richard Haubrich. Ned
joined the ABS and brought several types of bamboo with him back to
Through trial and error and with advise from friends in the ABS, Ned
discovered which new bamboos thrive in the cool PNW, while driving
nearly 1000 miles to attend annual ABS meetings in San Diego. Suddenly
captivated by the subject, Ned read and collected every book he could
find about bamboo.
Ned and bamboo friend Daphne Lewis formed the new PNW chapter of the ABS
and held their first meeting in Tacoma, WA. Daphne became the first
chapter president and Ned the first vise president. Many bamboos found
their way into Ned and Nancy's back yard in SE Portland.
Ned Jaquith founded the business Bamboo Garden, based our namesake on
the book “The Bamboo Garden” by A.B. Freeman-Mitford, 1896. He
rented a two acre lot and old green house to grow bamboo starts in
Milwaukie, OR, and began selling them at local garden club meetings, or
to whoever was interested. People thought he was a little nuts, but that
certainly didn’t deter his enthusiasm. Ned was elected to serve on the
Board of Directors for the ABS and attended the 1st
International Bamboo Conference in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico. He met many
new bamboo growers and important bamboo nurserymen, such as Wolfgang Eberts, of Bambus Centrum in Germany and Yves Corset of the famous 100+
year old garden and bamboo nursery: La Bambouseraie in southern France.
Propelled by newfound inspiration, Ned spent many long days, weeks, and
years collecting, planting, and propagating bamboo, giving talks around
the Portland area, and gradually developing the fledgling bamboo
business. He made connections with others in the horticultural industry
and the Bamboo Society. The groves matured in the Milwaukie, OR
location, hidden behind Mary Jean's Flower Shop. New species and
cultivars of bamboo were introduced. Ned and his circle of friends and
partners, Rick Valley and Jed Doty, among others, became the local
beacon of bamboo knowledge. The American Bamboo Society grew in
membership and enthusiasm, forming several new chapters across the US.
Ned Jaquith and many other new bamboo growers attended the first PNW
Bamboo Agroforestry Workshop organized by Gib Cooper in Gold Beach, OR.
With participation from over 100 attendees, the concept of using bamboo
as an agroforestry crop as well as a nursery product was further
conceptualized. Bamboo farming began to gain serious consideration by
With dreams of expanding into a true garden/nursery, Ned purchased 16
acres of forested hillside and valley in North Plains, OR, the site of
our present nursery. Although it would take nine years before we were
able to move the business completely to this site, we began field
planting groves after logging sections of the forest. Ned attended the
Professional Bamboo Growers Conference and ABS meeting in the American
bamboo heartland, Savannah, GA.
By this time, Bamboo Garden had amassed a collection of over 200
different species and cultivars of bamboo, most of them tucked into our
small 2 acre rental nursery. Many exciting new species of clumping
bamboo were established in our greenhouses. Bamboo gradually gained more
popularity in the gardening world as well as American culture. Ned hires
young horticulturist, Kerri Flemmons, to help manage the nursery
The second PNW Bamboo Agroforestry Workshop is held in Port Townsend,
WA. The event has remarkable turn out, fueling the surge in bamboo
enthusiasm locally and nationally. Ned Jaquith is considered by many in
attendance to be the regional “bamboo guru” and is one of the featured
lecturers, speaking about his fascination with bamboo and their
mysterious flowering process. Kerri helps refine the system in place and
bamboo production and sales increase, while Ned continues to give tours
and presentations (as well as take many tours!).
Bamboo Garden became recognized nationally as one of the premier mail
order bamboo specialty nurseries, an early rendition of our catalog
being featured on Martha Stewart Living. We began to gain notoriety as a
wholesale source of quality bamboo, shipping large orders to the east
coast and other areas in the spring. Ned hires Reveriano Ramirez to be
foreman in the field for bamboo digging, planting, and maintenance.
Bamboo Garden launches the first phase of our website and becomes an
internet source for bamboo knowledge and photos, attracting a wider
range of customers. Bamboo Garden has our first bamboo display at the
popular Far West trade show organized by the Oregon Association of
Nurseries. Ned hires Teresa Lopez to focus on irrigation and
propagation. By this time a large area has been cleared and prepared for
bamboo planting at our North Plains acreage, in addition to gravel roads
and two ponds created in the valley. Bamboo Garden donates many large
specimens of P. edulis Moso for the creation of the beautiful Lan
Su Chinese Garden, in Portland.
During one of Ned's
tours among bamboo nurseries in England, he meets horticulturist, Ian
Connor, who he asks to travel back the the US and work for Bamboo
Garden. Ned becomes president of the PNW chapter of the American Bamboo
Society. Ned gives a special bamboo presentation at the Far West Show
and Bamboo Garden becomes a regular vendor each August. The P. edulis
'Moso' planted at Ned and Nancy's home reaches astonishing height of
nearly 40 feet, largest yet recorded in the PNW.
Ned travels to Chile with friend, Mike Remmick, in search of hardy
clumping bamboos in the genus of Chusquea. Bamboo Garden and the
PNW Chapter of the ABS host the annual bamboo conference. Bamboo Garden
is one of the primary tour destinations featured in the national event.
Ned hires young bamboo enthusiast, Noah Bell, to assist with nursery
sales and bamboo propagation. Progress is made at our North Plains
location, as the first field plantings begin to mature and construction
plans for a state of the art new green house are made. Mail order
bamboos increase and our spring sales are the highest yet recorded.
Kerri Flemmons creates bamboo landscaping business, Canes Keeper,
working in conjunction with Bamboo Garden, while Ian Connor takes over
management duties at the nursery.
Bamboo popularity continues to climb as Bamboo Garden introduces new
varieties into cultivation. Construction of the facilities at North
Plains takes place under Ned's direction, with Bob Landry and sons in
charge of assembly. Office and shipping warehouse, new Cravo retractable
greenhouse, irrigation piping, and many areas to store containerized
bamboo are built from the ground up. Bamboo Garden opens secondary
retail location within Cistus Design Nursery on Sauvie Island with plant
legend, Sean Hogan.
Moving year is at hand! With new facilities in place, Bamboo Garden
begins the long process of digging most of our bamboo from the Milwaukie
site and transplanting to the North Plains location. Ned recruits bamboo
enthusiast and “super-hauler” Dain Sansome to assist with the massive
bamboo migration. Bamboo Garden receives a large wholesale order to
supply several thousand ground cover bamboo for the innovative new
landscape design at Wellesley College, as a result of our friendship
with bamboo specialist and president of the ABS, Susanne Lucas. Ned is
awarded honorary lifetime membership by the American Bamboo Society in
recognition of his generosity, enthusiasm, and knowledge.
Shaking off the dust from a massively snowy winter (for Portland, OR),
we close the nursery in Milwaukie and begin a new era, making the final
push to move the whole operation to the 16 acre facility in North
Plains. Noah Bell takes over management of the nursery at the new
location, while Ian and Kerri pursue other interests. With lots of open
space to grow bamboo, Ned plants many new trial species around the
hillside and valley of Bamboo Garden. Despite the arduous moving
process, spring sales at the new location are excellent and bamboo
production increases for the years to follow. We purchase several golf
carts to give customer tours and move about the nursery efficiently. We
start construction of our second large scale greenhouse, a Jonkman style
system, which doubles our total protected space, keeping the new bamboos
safe from the winter elements.
Phasing out the retail program with Cistus Design, and finally closing
the doors to the old location, we focus all of our energy on developing
the new 16 acre site into a full scale nursery. Through careful planing,
we are able to remain open year round, which paves the way for a
dramatic increase in propagation of bamboo during the long winters,
along with full time employment for our core group. With a larger
warehouse and shipping bay, we are able to improve our bamboo shipping
methods to keep up with the demand. Some of our early bamboo groves
reach mature heights and we are able to produce bamboo large enough to
fill 100 gallon containers, exceeding 30 feet in height, to be used in
commercial landscape projects. Fargesia murielae goes into full
flower and Bamboo Garden collects and germinates thousands of seeds. Ned
and Noah launch a new phase of website design, using many photographs
from our bamboo collection and local landscapes. Our website becomes
internationally known as a bamboo information resource.
Bamboo Garden supplies over 30 species of bamboo for the Asia Trail
Project; an ambitious design by the Smithsonian for the National Zoo in
Washington, DC. The total order fills two and a half, 53 foot semi
trucks with bamboo, our largest order to date. The Pandas and Sun bears
were undoubtedly very happy. Spring wholesale and retail orders were the
highest yet recorded. Dain and wife, Suya, move to Albany to start their
own business, Bamboo Valley, but remain employed part time with Bamboo
Garden. Ned takes a bamboo tour in Europe, visiting many famous gardens
and collectors while Noah maintains the nursery operation. Bamboo Garden
supplies 875x 10 gallon Chusquea culeou for the Wayne Morse
Courthouse in Eugene OR. A new introduction from Chile, C. culeou
breaks ground for commercial landscape design. The ABS national
convention is held in Hawaii and Ned takes an exciting bamboo tour with
his close friends.
Bamboo Garden provides over 200 25 to 30 foot tall Phyllostachys
for the Shangri La Project in Vancouver BC. It takes two 53' trailers
and a creative loading strategy to safely transport all of our timber
bamboo to the jobsite in Canada. The bamboo design is visually stunning,
planted along a large metal and glass skyscraper; the tallest new
building in BC. Bamboo Garden begins expansion of the upper warehouse
and builds a lower barn and kitchen for employees. Clumping bamboo
becomes more accepted as a low maintenance alternative to the larger
running type bamboos. Fargesia robusta gains recognition as a
premier clumping bamboo screen. Noah Bell designs and installs the Sound
Barrier Project; a 600 foot bamboo screen to be used to muffle the
traffic noise for three residences in Portland. Ned gives a bamboo
presentation for the International Plant Propagators Society in Salem,
OR. Intense rain in December causes minor flooding in the nursery as the
creek breaches its bank. The flow resides leaving behind a large muddy
mess, but all things considered, our actual plant
losses are minimal.
Ned and several bamboo friends go on an ABS sponsored tour to Ecuador to
see giant Guadua Bamboo and experience the local culture. Now with a
total staff of 15 people, Bamboo Garden continues to grow and flourish.
During the spring rush, customers visit the nursery from nearby
Portland, and even from places as far away as Japan. Wholesale spring
orders are the highest yet recorded. New shipping techniques and
connections enable us to provide nearly any size bamboo to any location
in the lower 48 and Canada. Our unique style: quality plants, diversity
(including many rare bamboos), and friendly, knowledgeable service keep
customers engaged and coming back. Paul James of HGTV, films an episode
at Bamboo Garden in which Noah gives a tour of the nursery and talks
about interesting bamboos and propagation techniques. With help from
bamboo sculptor and friend, Charissa Brock, Bamboo Garden produces a new
full color catalog. Author, Ted Meredith, takes many photos of our
groves for his new bamboo book, Pocket Guide for Bamboos. The winter
would bring more snow than we had seen in a decade, collapsing one of
our smaller green houses and shutting down the nursery for several days.
Nobody ever said it was going to be easy!
Thinning and cleaning up many groves after the major snow storm, Bamboo
Garden creates a system for storing, higrading, and selling our home
grown bamboo canes. Our groves reach mature size, allowing for a
sustainable harvest each summer and winter. Oregon grown “Black Bamboo”
and the beautifully mottled 'Bory' become especially sought after. In
February we have our first display at the Yard Garden Patio Show in
Portland. At the Portland Bamboo Festival, Noah gives a presentation
about useful new introductions of clumping type bamboos. Once again, the
PNW Chapter of the ABS hosts the bamboo conference in Tacoma, WA. Long
time friends and horticultural influences, Mike Bell and Whitney Adams,
travel from afar to give presentations at the conference. We provide
bamboo for the Altaire Project in the Bay Area; a detailed, bamboo
centric plan, featuring over 25 different species with many different
colors and textures. This project was a unique design that was installed
in three phases from 2008 through 2010, tapping our resources to their
full potential. An arctic blast unlike anything we had seen before
hovers over the PNW for about 10 days in December, during which many
bamboos met their untimely fate.
After a lengthy clean up from the winter, we compile new data of bamboo
hardiness and share with the ABS and others. Many Borinda types were top
killed. Ken Tomita and team from “Grove” have a photo shoot at Bamboo
Garden with models for their new bamboo iphone cases. Bamboo Garden wins
an award for our display booth at the Farwest Show, designed by Anna
Foleen with cane border constructed by artist, Charissa Brock. Author
Paul Whitaker uses Noah's bamboo photos in his new book: Practical
Bamboos. Ned and Noah tour to USDA bamboo heartland, Savanah GA for the
Fall ABS conference. For over 60 years, the USDA used the property in
Savanah for importing new species of bamboo for test trials. Many of the
old groves remain there for educational purposes, managed by University
Portland Parks and Recreation horticulturists tour Bamboo Garden and are
taught the methods of bamboo pruning and maintenance by Noah and Matt.
An idea is further discussed about creating a public bamboo grove in one
of Portland's Parks. Noah is a guest on “In the Garden” radio show by
local gardening personality, Mike Darcy. Oregon Public Broadcasting
films Oregon Field Guide at Bamboo Garden focusing on local grad
student, Andrea Melnychenko's research with bamboo bio emissions, while
Noah shows the nursery in front of the camera. Ned and Noah give a
presentation about Bamboo Flowering, collecting, and sewing seeds at
Portland Bamboo Festival. 2011 is an amazing year for bamboo flowering.
We observe and record 11 different species producing seed in and around
the Portland area. Bamboo Garden ships an entire truck load of bamboo to
create a 900 foot bamboo screen for private residence in PA. Ned, Noah,
Anna, and many other ABS members tour the 100 year old Moso Groves on
Avery Island LA, during the national ABS conference, while under great
southern hospitality of Andy Ringle and LA Chapter of the ABS.
Ned goes to the World Bamboo Organization conference and gives a
presentation about Bamboo Garden for the attendants in Belgium.
Traveling with close friends, James Clever, and Susanne Lucas, Ned has a
great trip, touring several rare bamboo gardens. Bamboo Garden ships
1000 divisions of clumping bamboo (Fargesia rufa) to a wholesale
customer in Quebec. We create a 20 x 20 bamboo display island for the Farwest Show. The show is a great success and we sell all the plants in
our booth to a local gardener. As a complete shock to everyone, Ned is
diagnosed with cancer in July, and despite the best efforts from local
doctors and immense support from friends and family, Ned passes on
September 26th. As the business and American Bamboo Society
morn the loss of a great contributor to modern bamboo
horticulture and close friend to many, we recognize Ned's life
achievements and honor his passing. Japanese Garden has art exhibit
dedicated to Ned, featuring Charissa Brock's bamboo sculptures. Truly a
great organization supporting many families, Ned wanted the business,
Bamboo Garden, to continue after his passing. Now with 18 staff members,
Bamboo Garden is led by Noah and Ned's wife, Nancy Oberschmidt. Members
of the ABS and Bamboo Garden start the non-profit
Ned Jaquith Foundation
to support further bamboo research and knowledge, while commemorating
Ned's sunset photo
After a long winter, the spring sales are excellent. Bamboo Garden
further refines our pallet shipping system, enabling us to send large
bamboos to most anywhere in the country with fast turn around time.
Bamboo Garden supplies the bamboo for the St. Louis Zoo project, where a
bamboo screen over 1,000 feet long is being created. On July 13th
we host a memorial for Ned; over 120 people come from all parts of the
country and even overseas. The event was a great success and emotional
release for many old friends in bamboo. Bringing everyone together to
celebrate Ned's life was a perfect way to see him off. The future looks
bright for bamboo...
