Copper beech hedging

... and I don't think it detracts from our cottage border which has been changed to a Beth Chatto gravel style garden (drought tolerant plants and agave etc) in September 2018. The laurel doesn't push against the fence as other hedging does, its much better with light pruning rather than tight ...

... tolerant plants but I hope to create that jungle look. I have purchased 2 200L water butts to hopefully lessen my water bill this summer Yucca and agave do fit in well with a jungle theme.

Is it possible to transplant a large Agave Americana in winter?

I've potted it up in a roughly 50/50 split of compost and sand/grit which I've not watered at all yet. Wondered whether it would be a good idea to water just the once whilst it's still mild, and then leave it dry for winter?... I'll put it in the ground "when the clocks change" :wink: in a mix of pr...

Is it possible to transplant a large Agave Americana in winter?

Miraculously I came away completely unscathed!... which is even more surprising given I had to move it and pot it up my end on my own! I'll definitely protect it, especially as late January is predicted to be cold. One thing I'm not sure on though, is wether to give it a little water now whilst its ...

Certainly was. Luckily the chap I bought it from had his son help him dig it up ready for when I got there. Had to get it out alone once I got home though!!
