The bamboos are FAB! Both my wife and I are delighted with them.The Fargesia will go very nicely in its new spot and I have also been doing some googling of the Borinda and it does seem to be a very exciting plant, which I hope will grow well in its new position.Many thanks for supplying great plants and for your customer service.
