The following is a photo tour of Bamboo Garden. Our nursery now occupies 20 acres in a beautiful woodland setting. The photos speak for themselves. We hope you enjoy the tour, but please come out and visit if you get a chance ~nothing takes the place of seeing the nursery in person. We have the largest collection of temperate bamboo in the United States and hope to help others gain a new appreciation and understanding for this remarkable plant.

This is an aerial photo of the nursery was taken in 2011. You can see the office and parking area at the bottom of the photo. The two ponds are just to the left of the two main green houses. Display bamboo groves flank the hillside. Most of the nursery (where potted bamboos can be found) is located in the valley around the greenhouses.
The upper green house is attached to the office and shipping warehouse as you enter the nursery parking area. We usually begin customer tours here and orient people to the layout of the nursery. Visitors are welcome to take a self guided tour or have one of our bamboo consultants give a golf cart tour, covering all of the important topics and seeing various types of bamboo groves at mature heights in a natural setting.
Bamboo propagation takes place year round: rhizome harvesting and making root cuttings. Washing out clumping bamboo rhizomes. Isaias and crew loading a large truck.
