The article focuses on growing bamboo in Nova Scotia. According to the author, he got his first clump of Fargesia nitida bamboo in 1974. He recounts that the plant grew slowly because of the poor soil but demonstrated hardiness and the ability to remain green even during winter months. He recounts seeing the first flowers in his Fargesia plant in Halifax in July 2009. After that, seeds ripened faster and around 160 were harvested by the following month.
