Agave schottii

24th February 2008

I have just been given these five seedlings (thanks Steve) from the Mazatal Mountains in Arizona. They have potential to be cold hardy, but I have lost it outside in the wet before, so the next trial will be under a plastic cover.

I had a rather lovely little group of them developing in the Agave house but unfortunately I lost a couple of them to theft in late spring. I'm not going to spend my life locking the greenhouse every spare moment and walking around with a big set of keys to get access in my own garden, so I'm going to live with it and hope it's just kids in that awkward period before they discover sex. Meantime I can enjoy the spikiness of the remainder and hope that the stolen plants put up a fight.
