Cloche1008

Go back to weekly blog


I built this cloche form off-cuts of polycarbonate insulation a few years ago and every year I place it over the Agave which has flourished. The Agave has grown so large that I have had to enlarge it twice. This keeps the dry area dry during the winter and also protects the plants inside from frosts. This year I am expecting the winter to be harsh and I might have to add some heating during the worst of the frost, but that is not until January. A small paraffin greenhouse heater will have to be obtained.
