... that will not repeat in the following years. I'd give it another year or two, hopefully it will adapt to harsh winters and grow. I'm in zone 7b and this winter we've seen temperatures lower than -20°C, measured at soil level. Combined with winds, I can't even imagine what kind of horror your ...

I'm in 7b borderline to 7 and so it's a bit colder here, but this was a rough winter. I had a few 1 gal moso pots in the ground for 2 years and they were about 3 feet tall with culms pencil size to a bit larger, and leaves were ...

... promotes late tender growth that does not have time to "harden off" and will die with the first really cold spell. Now if you live in 7b or warmer then you might get away with fertilizing late in the season, but not where I live. I have killed a lot of bamboo trying different things ...
