What a fantastic agave will it survive in the snow and icy conditions we are having ?😊

Usually cover mine over with a large fleece on the really cold nights between January till about now mid March. But this winter especially in the last few weeks I've had no choice but to bring mine indoors with all this snow! 😫 it's a bit sickly at the moment due to the unregular weather! ❄☔🌞❄☔🌞😖 fingers crossed @suerichards

My agave americana bit the dust after getting too cold, it's amazing seeing this agave under all that snow!

@porto @suerichards @gjones @tmwignall @Soph1e you need very good drainage it’s not the cold that gets them it’s the wet with cold and it helps that the agave is on a razed bed
