Care & planting

The most important thing when growing Agaves in the UK is to keep them dry in winter. If you are growing them in pots this is easy, move them into a green house or shed ect with good light. Do not water them from Oct till it warms up in the spring, and with attenuata you will have to make sure it stays frost free in winter.

Uses

Great as a pot plant in the UK they give a very architectural feel to the exotic garden.
