Event Description

Greg Starr comes to town to share his love for the agave plant, a fantastic, drought-resistant plant. Many people are intimidated by this plant, fearing its mature size and extreme flowering habits. However, with a variety of sizes, colors, and habits, Agaves can work great in gardens, large or small, and even in containers! 

At this event, learn how to successfully grow this plant at your home through a discussion on sun requirements, frost hardiness, and watering requirements.  Discover best practices for dealing with an agave after it flowers and see a potting demonstration during the class, which you can replicate on your own.  Participants will receive a list of must-have agave species for the garden and containers. Pretty much everything you ever wondered about agaves will be answered in this informative presentation by nursery owner, author, and xeriscape advocate, Greg Starr.
