Agave Flower

Our Agave sisalana (Sisal Agave) is about to flower: it's sent up a stalk that is twenty feet and climbing, sideways anyway. We are undertaking a lot of 'training' to get this thing to flower without breaking the greenhouse glass. Come by to view, but please call first. Tuesdays and Thursdays are preferred.

Plant of the Week articles

  • Due to computer and email delivery problems, our weekly column has not been delivered to our faithful readers' in-boxes (unfaithful readers are grateful for this catastrophe). We are working to resolve this problem, meanwhile continuing to write and produce our classy columns. Please be patient. You will also notice that our Garden Clips videos continue to arrive in your mailboxes roughly once a week, with a very important "Opt Out" option. Thanks for viewing!

Magnolia grandiflora

I realized over the course of the last few columns that I start out every one with a lament or description of the weather. This worn-out form of human interaction is next to useless for those readers in far climes, so I will self-edit this portion out of the process. The local weather conditions can be ascertained elsewhere. As for effects on plants and gardens (and gardeners): water what is dry, protect yourself from the sun and the heat and drink lots of liquids.
