Commercial Bamboo Businesses

This list of bamboo nurseries and plant suppliers is designed to help you find a source of bamboo in the Pacific Northwest. This list is not meant as an endorsement of any of these businesses and shall not be used as such. As a new crop in our region, bamboo species can be difficult to find in sufficient quantities and it is our goal to aid new farmers or bamboo growers in their search for plant material.
