On rainy days (and the subsequent muddy days), I try to find garden tasks that don't involve working outside or in the yard's wet soil. Today I potted my first Agave plant (Agave 'Blue Glow'). I decided to place it into a pot to help me control both its watering and sunshine (i.e. chase around the few patches of sun in my yard). This Agave appealed to me as a listing on Dave's Garden (my absolute favorite plant website) mentions it will do fine in all-day filtered shade (and, by golly, that I can supply!).
Thought I'd list my potting process. Doubt if there is anything very new in my methods - but just felt like sharing (in case someone spots me doing something crazy or has any suggestions for improvement).
Following a tip from John Dromgoole (a regular on Central Texas Gardener), I previously purchased a small roll of fiberglass screen (carried at any hardware store; one roll will last me years). I trim off a piece about the size of the bottom of my pot.
