Great catch! Think I paid at least £5 for just one Yucca filamentosa, so you must have £50 worth of plants.

Good one.
However, 1p listing, price of the phone call, cost of the thimble full of fuel you used to pick it up....the price is rising! :D

Seems I may have underestimated the size of this, after chatting to the guy it looks like it maybe a bit to big for me to transport easily.
It will be relisted for anybody that wants it get it quickly...

Would it not fit in a car boot if you took out the shelf? You could take 2 forks to try and separate it to make it transport better.

You are crazy, go and cut the spikes off, so long as you push them down into the soil they will root no trouble.
Leave the roots & the bag behind.

I took a broken yucca stem off Freecycle and planted it in my neighbours garden, its coming into flower now!
Someone else on here is bound to want some of the spares.

I thought that but then decided Its a nice plant complete for somebody that wouldn't separate it - based on me thinking somebody would love it more than me ;) :)
