Tall bamboos, 12 to 40 feet tall:
 Bamboo Garden specializes in very large bamboos in 10 gallon through 100 gallon containers. Giant Black Bamboo, Timber sized Moso, Incense Bamboo, among many others.

Our pallet shipping system is a great way to get large size or high volume bamboos delivered to your curbside by a commercial freight carrier. We can easily fit bamboo from 5 to 12 feet in height onto our pallet system.  We are committed to finding the lowest rate carriers that have a reliable service record.  All shipments are guaranteed to arrive in healthy condition and can be easily delivered to any residential zone. We want satisfied customers! Contact us for a rate quote for your project.

--Shipping for bamboo over 15 feet tall is usually restricted to commercial zones, shipped by commercial freight trucks that have temperature controlled trailers.
Contact us for more info and current market rates. We can usually send you very large bamboo, if you need a tall screen or grove immediately. Residential customers will need to coordinate with the truck driver to meet at an open, commercial zone, or assure that the area for delivery can accommodate a 53 foot semi. We highly recommend working with a landscape professional to achieve this. Local deliveries in Oregon and Washington can be delivered with a smaller truck and do not require a commercial zone or 53 foot semi. Call to inquire about local delivery.

-- For shipping bamboo between 5 and 15 feet tall see Pallet Shipping below:

Wholesale: Landscapers, garden centers, nurseries, and others interested in large quantities, please contact us for wholesale discounts. We can email you a copy of our current Wholesale price list.

Pallet Shipping  large quantities of bamboo, save money and packaging resources
This particular order (top picture) is about 30x 5 gallon bamboo that are 5-8 feet tall. Palletizing the whole package usually allows us to select taller bamboo when shipping large volume orders of over 8x 5 gallon or 10 gallon. We can also ship 10 gallon to 20 gallon bamboo (below, left) with this technique, as long as they are under 15 feet tall, or over 50x 1g or 2g stacked on the same pallet (see picture below, right) Contact us for Freight rates.  503-647-2700

UPS 3 DAY AIR SHIPPING is recommended during the hottest and coldest times of the year. (or wait until the weather turns mild) Certain bamboos (Fargesia, for example) are sensitive to extreme heat and should be planted in the Spring or Fall. Others (such as Phyllostachys ), love the hot weather and can be shipped by UPS GROUND and planted almost any time, except when the ground is frozen solid. If you live in California or pretty much anywhere in or west of the Rocky Mountains, Midwest, or Central we can send your plants via UPS Ground at any time of the year, barring extreme cold or heat waves.  Please call or e-mail us if you have any other questions.
