Fruits of His Labor

Norm Schilling has advice on Spring chores that are easy and effective. And he has an update on his blooming Agave.

(Note from Norm: Unfortunately, while 'winging' it (like I always do), I mis-spoke and called it Agave geminiflora. It is NOT geminiflora (Twin-flowered Agave), it is vilmoriniana, (Octopus Agave).

Agave vilmoriniana
Agave vilmoriniana - the spike appears...
...and within one week it's 5 to 6 feet tall.

A week later and the spike is 10 to 11 feet tall.
