Dawn & David

We have a very dear friend in Dr David Byfield who is creating a garden near to us at Summerlands Farm. As anyone who knows him will tell you, David is a Bamboo and Hosta evangelist and it is very likely that you are reading this after being redirected from David’s own Dorset Bamboo website. His knowledge and skill with Bamboo is quite remarkable and has led to him amassing a very extensive collection. His inclination is to share this collection with the world, but unfortunately his illness prevents him creating the Bamboo nursery of his dreams. That is where we are able to step in, providing a link to all of David’s boundless knowledge and access to propagating his stock.

We don’t act as a Bamboo nursery, just as a conduit to enable you to access David’s boundless knowledge. If you have a bamboo related query then please feel free to send us an email and we will forward it on. We regret that most bamboos are too large to courier and are therefore only available for collection.
