My small collection of Agave in the windowsill garden has now increased in size, quite literally. The new additions were part of a shipment of cactus and succulents I discovered at the local nursery – just begging to come home with me and join the gang. I succumbed. They are so different from the ones I already have and these new plants are in great shape. They are now sitting in my dining room, patiently waiting to be re-potted.
I’ve posted before about how difficult it is buy nice clay pots in town and at this time of year it’s next to impossible to find what I want. So these beauties will stay in the dining room until spring when I hope a fresh shipment (or two) of terracotta will be delivered to a local nursery. Alas, no ID tags on the new Agave either, so I’m busy trying to match a name to a face. Which is not a easy as you might think – there’s a lot of variation in leaf colour, size and pattern in these plants.
