Just when you are growing used to the idea that hemp is the world's most versatile plant, along comes bamboo to lay claim to the title. Bamboo is used throughout Asia for food, furniture, household items, musical instruments, and much, much more. In the western countries its use has been limited to specialty items such as garden stakes, but increasingly it is drawing attention as a renewable form of fiber. This practical and authoritative text shows how to grow clumping bamboo varieties in any climate. Readers will also learn:
-- How to grow your own bamboo timber plantation
-- How to harvest bamboo shoot for the kitchen
-- How to make bamboo furniture and fences

You will even learn how to make your own pan flute.
