Thank you very much for your input, Brad.
Your reports are especially interesting for us, because of similar zone.
This year we had crazy warm winter, only a couple of weeks below freezing, I think, it was milder than in your site.
Sorry about parvifolia vs. deer, btw, how long are its last (parvifolia) runners?
(not sure if you remember our discussion on Gardenweb about parvifolia growth) :)

Regards, calvi

Thx for info!
Climate is going crazy and last winter was coldest since 20 years, this winter was warmest also since decades...
Eastern Poland was not so lucky as west part. In one cold, sunny and windy weekend I have 20-90% of leaf burn.

My Parvifolia is only 2 winters in the ground and had not spread much last year. I expect to see it start shooting in 4-6 weeks, so I will let you know how far out the new shoots have come. In my hot, humid, rainy climate, with frost free growing from April - October the runners usually spread quite fast, not at all like the UK, probably more like your area?

My P. parvifolia is also after two winters and at least one fat rhizome is about 2m away. At the moment it's the quickest growing bamboo in my garden.
