Learn all about growing bamboo at this free program! Bamboo comes in many sizes from giant to dwarf and it thrives in our climate. Find out about the different varieties and which would be best for your situation.

You can get all this information at the June 15th program of the Seminole Bromeliad and Tropical Plant Society, which will be all about bamboo! Sherry Boas, owner of Beautiful Bamboo nursery will talk about the benefits of growing bamboo and the different types that do well in Central Florida.

Sherry and her family have been growing bamboo for over 20 years. With more than 30 varieties available at their nursery in Groveland, they have a bamboo for every purpose. Whether you want privacy, beauty, or materials for staking and construction, there is a bamboo for you!

Sherry will be bringing bamboo plants for sale during the meeting so if you see something you like you can take it home with you! Members of the club will be selling other tropicals and there will also be a plant raffle.

The Seminole Bromeliad and Tropical Plant Society meets at the Garden Club of Sanford, located at 200 Fairmont Dr., Sanford, FL. The building faces 17-92 (Orlando Ave), and is just one block south of Lake Mary Blvd. The meeting is free and open to the public. The program is slated to start at 2 p.m.
