That's Mark, he used to post here but not seen him for a while :( . Really nice bloke, knowledgeable collector who has almost all the ultra rare Agaves, send him a message and see if you can go visit and chat; I'm sure he'll say yes and send him my regards too. icon_thumright

Hi Codfather given the last few winters and where you are I would doubt if any would be hardy for you :( and I know Mark would be the first to agree,but a few might come through if you are happy to protect.
