Product Description

A stunning and striking architectural plant that suits modern garden designs, or desert and cactus styles, especially in a metallic pot.

This tough succulent really thrives in neglect, and is surprisingly hardy in the UK - we have had them for 5+ years outdoors all year, and are fine if you keep them very dry. It is a striking speciment, very slow growing over here, but long lasting.

After 20 -30 years they may flower - unleashing huge 3-5M tall flower spikes in a last act of bravado, as after flowering they die. However, there are normally lots of 'pups' round the side by then,. which imemdiately take it's place.

Grow in a very free draining mix with plenty of sand or gravel (up to 50% mix with compost). Once potted they should be fine for 5-10 years....

Warning - the leaves have very spiky tips, and some smaller ones on leaf margins. Handle with care. Avoid places where chidlren or pets may brush against them.

My only comment, which is not the fault of You Garden, is that I know my plant sat in the delivery Depot from Saturday to Monday as it wasn't on the round for Saturday, the driver told me this but said he couldn't bring it out on Saturday as it wasn't his round. It was well packed and took no harm but it seemed a shame that this had to happen to a live plant.
Product:
Lovely big plant with lots of offshoots - vicious spines though so take care!

Plants arrived squashed into a box way too small. Agave and callistemon had broken stems and leaves, and the conifers that were supposed to be 80-100 cm tall were 67 including pot.
Product:
Very nice, but one main leaf broken due to poor handling and packaging.

Read a review were they stated that plants took 2 weeks to arrive. It was true. I appreciate an email from You Garden informing me of my plant arrival.
Product:
It's a beautiful plant, never bought an agave before from mail order before. The plant was overall in good condition. But one its outer leaves was badly torn. Hopefully will grow new leaves and be happy again.
