|Our family owned and operated company ships over 7000 bamboo divisions throughout North America each year. We have been growing bamboo since 1985 and selling online since 1995. As one of the largest providers we sell only premium divisions. With an annual inventory of over 10,000 containerized bamboo we are able to select only the best.|
We provide a green product and strive to deliver it to you with little negative impact on the environment. We use recycled bags in our shipping and use boxes made from recycled materials. We also use organic methods when possible to provide the best products we can.
Second generation owner, Roger Lewis, Jr. with his lovely wife Rachel. She is very knowledgeable and usually the person you talk to when you call our nursery.
|Our bamboo hobby turned into a large business that we hope is making the world a greener place. Over the years, Roger Sr. and Gayle passed the love of this beautiful plant onto their only child, Roger Jr. |
This photo of Roger was made several years ago in our Moso grove.
He graduated with honors in 1999, BS in Business Management, from the University of Alabama. Roger is a state licensed landscaper and now owns and operates Lewis Bamboo, Inc.

|We are all very active members of the American Bamboo Society. We attend meetings and volunteer regularly to clean up groves to restore them to their natural beauty. On February 15, 2003 Gayle was elected as the director for the Southeast Chapter of the ABS, also on October 17, 2003 she was selected to be the webmaster. She proudly served in these positions and will always continue do her part to spread the love of bamboo. |
