Following Brett Simpson’s last post on the pacific war I asked him, how do you make your bamboo groves? I think the bamboo is a key part of the look of Brett’s table and, well, I want to copy them. Here is what he said.
Making Bamboo groves
You are most welcome.
The bamboo groves were quite easy to do. I just cut up some of the aquarium plant mats that I purchased some time ago on EBay. There are two types, and these form the undergrowth. The plants themselves are removable in the same way as the fairy garden plants, so I mixed the two types of plant on each section to make it look more wild.
The bamboo itself was cheap single lengths. I got it from EBay quite some time ago, but I can’t remember the supplier. Each individual length is 9 cm long if that helps.
I just insert them directly into the undergrowth and remove them for easy storage when I pack up the table. The undergrowth holds the bamboo in place quite well.
