Mary Ann Digging a root ball

Bamboo Spade...

Our Bamboo Spade is the ultimate root balling spade for bamboo as well as other plants.
The Bamboo Spade is being manufactured for MidAtlantic Bamboo by W. W. Manufacturing Co., Inc., the maker of the "King of Spades."
The Bamboo Spade digs faster, cuts the rhizomes clean, gives well-formed root balls, saves your knees and feet.
It allows you to stand to the side to get into tight spaces, and is a great tool for containing bamboo by root pruning.

First law on holes
.........when you're in one, stop digging!

We have made every effort to provide accurate information about bamboo but we have found that bamboo does what it wants to given different circumstances.

One way we contained our bamboo....
