Agave


Agave

One either side of the front door. I must check the roots before long, no doubt they will be going round in circles!

Mind the sharp point on the end of the leaves. I just snip the end off, to prevent damage to the eyes when bending over them.

So smart though Shirley! You've taken me right back to Jardin Majorelles in Marrakech again!

Yes Siris, exactly what I do too.

I'm pleased to hear it Karen ... :o))

I love your blue pots ,Shirley,and your Agave looks very healthy..I'm surprised they can survive outside..they must be hardier than I thought,or is it because they are sheltered by your door ?

Sandra, they seem to withstand frost, rain and wind as all those things reach one side of the pots! I guess a South facing garden helps them too ...

That's good,Shirley..our front door faces south too,and is pretty well sheltered from the elements from above,and a house wall to one side..open at the other two sides,if you see what I mean ;o) I could possibly have one of these in the corner..but then again,we are oop North ! Lol xx

I agree with Bloomer, I wouldn't have thought they could survive outside in our winters. Just goes to show...

I often think a hard frost will see them off, hopefully not!

Looking good Shirley, we have a small blue Agave still outside...

A friend sent hers to me because it was getting too big for her house! It's so big I put it in the greenhouse out of the way!

Dotty, this will be year 4 that they have been outside. A small blue Agave sounds lovely ...

Hb, you be careful when you enter your greenhouse with that monster Agave in there!
