Making bamboo canes last longer.

When making a frame for climbing plants etc., instead of inserting the cane directly into the ground, if you can get hold of some old hollow piping bang this in first until firm and then just place the bamboo cane into the pipe. You can tie round the cane and pipe to make it extra secure, and this will stop the cane from rotting in the ground.
