About Bamboo Garden
We started growing bamboo in 1980 and joined The American Bamboo Society (ABS) that same year. We helped establish the Pacific Northwest Chapter of the society and have served on the board of directors of both. Ned Jaquith, the late founder of Bamboo Garden, was elected in 2006, as vice president of the ABS and has been awarded Honorary Lifetime Membership due to over 25 years of whole-hearted efforts and generous bamboo knowledge. Ned Jaquith was one of the most significant bamboo growers, collectors, and promoters of our time. In addition to his amazing and diverse collection of bamboo, which evolved into our 20-acre nursery, he was a smart and generous person with a great sense of humor and goodwill. He will be greatly missed among bamboo lovers, the horticultural community, and his friends and family. We are very fortunate to be able to continue the nursery operation, Bamboo Garden, and provide the same level of service, expertise, and enthusiasm for bamboo as our founder.
The nursery is managed by Noah Bell, with over twelve years experience working closely with bamboo in the landscape and nursery trade, and managing Bamboo Garden since 2004. His bamboo photos and articles have been published by the ABS and German Bamboo Society (EBS) and Paul Whitakers book: Practical Bamboos. He is responsible for overseeing the production of about 300 different types of bamboo, maintaining our 20 acre nursery, and providing positive direction for our staff.
We specialize in hardy clumping species, as well as hardy giant timber bamboos, and have been at the forefront of introducing new species into the horticulture trade. See this link for our total collection. and this page for our regularly available species: price list. We have supplied bamboo for many large commercial landscaping projects including: Tacoma Zoo, Portland Classical Chinese Garden, Portland Japanese Garden, Oregon Zoo, Wellesley College in MA, Wayne Morse Courthouse in Eugene, OR, Asia Trail of National Zoo in Washington DC, Shangri La Project in Vancouver, BC, and many others. We work closely with landscaping companies, providing healthy and beautiful bamboo for commercial and residential landscapes, locally and afar. Finally, a huge thank you to all of our customers, without your support and continued business, this would not be possible...
Our largest project to date is the Asia Trail for the National Zoo in Washington DC as designed by The Smithsonian. Between February and June we worked tirelessly to put together a massive collection of bamboo meeting the criteria for this ambitious project. By mid June we had three, 53 foot semi trucks, packed full of our bamboo, ready to travel to Washington DC, and be incorporated into the Asia Trail design. It was a challenging, yet very rewarding task, working together among our staff and with our customers, seeing the project (and bamboo) grow from start to finish and achieving success in the landscape. The future looks bright for bamboo and we hope to be considered a reliable source, from the smallest mail order, to large-scale bamboo design, to other nurseries, and garden centers.
