Agave.....almost in flower

Well, it's almost there. This has taken almost exactly a year to get from lump at the top of the plant to ready to flower. I'm pretty convinced that this is a Montana.

I can't seem to get the image upright, so my apologies for the need to neck crane!

Agave titanota black shark shoui

Just arrived courtesy of eBay. Another rare Japanese cultivar as claimed or another tissue culture agave? I love it and have not seen another one similar for sale anywhere. It's got a bit of superficial damage but that should soon grow out.

Agave havardiana and Yucca gloriosa

I finished my arid bed in the Spring and misplaced the IDs for my two of the bigger plants .... just found them!! Agave havardiana and Yucca gloriosa. I would really appreciate a few snippets of advice, particularly overwintering. My intention is to cloche them to keep dry.

Agave attenuatta got too big what to do

My attenuatta is not four feet tall in the trunk and has a huge head,is it possible to decapitate the head leaving a small trunk to hopefully grow roots? It's getting too big to lug in and out in winter

Agave angustifolia marginalia - hardy in the uk?

Hi, I have been given a small offset and was wondering if anyone had one planted in the uk? Amrulee are suggesting that it handles cold and wet winters well, but I am sceptical.

Thanks, paul

Agave coring

Does anybody have experience of the practice of coring agaves? Basically it is a brutal way of propagating more plants and has been used to obtain variegated versions. Firstly, the core of the plant is drilled out until it resembles a doughnut, and then the plant is vertically sliced in half. The pl...
