Editorial Reviews


How anyone could pack so much information into such a slim book I'll never know. But leave it to Jackie Heinricher, owner of wholesale Boo-Shoot Gardens near Anacortes and B&B Laboratories in Mount Vernon. She s the queen of tissue-culture propagation and is producing exciting bamboo in demand in Europe as well as throughout the United States. Heinricher s first book is a hybrid between catalog and reference tool. It s self-published, full of photos and charts, and looks professionally produced. Learn all about the top 10 bamboos that behave, or clumping bamboos, and how to care for them. Whether you want to grow bamboo as a ground cover, in a pot, or as a living fence, you'll find the information here. Use the Selection Guide to locate the right bamboos for erosion control, wind breaks, rockeries, to use indoors, or in conditions that are wet, dry, or cold. -- --Valerie Easton, Seattle Times, March 7, 2007

About the Author

Author Jackie Heinricher lifelong relationship with bamboo began with her father tending golden bamboo around their house. In the late 1990s, Jackie began to experiment with bamboo propagation in her home greenhouse. She was especially intrigued by noninvasive, clumping bamboo because of the propagation challenges. She found them beautiful but almost impossible to replicate. Bamboo only flowers every 20-120 years, so seed is not a reliable method of propagation and rhizome stock suffers large mortalities through the division process, In the late 1990 s, Heinricher began to work with Randy Burr, owner of B&B Laboratories, who had nearly 30 years experience in propagation, on tissue culture of bamboo. The breakthrough came in 2004 with the successful tissue culture of fargesia rufa. In early 2007, Boo-shoot Gardens acquired B&B. Heinricher, a knowledgeable bamboo horticulturalist, has become a leader is bamboo tissue culture technology. Discovering Bamboo is the result of Heinricher s lifelong fascination with bamboo.
