Hello everyone
Do you know if I can save the agave that was pulled out from the ground by the wind? There was a storm and after a few days, I noticed that everything was frozen, including the agave. I don't know much about gardening, it looks like the roots are gone or agaves have very short roots. It is the nicest agave on my yard and I wouldn't want to loose it.

If..the plant doesn't turn to mush due to being frozen, and if it is small enough.. get it somewhere where the root zone area can remain constantly warm...this usually helps stimulate new root growth..

If the specimen is too large to move...dig a hole a little deeper then what it was growing and place the plant in..and cover with soil...It still might strike new roots..once the soil warms..or, it could produce "pups"..or side growths..just don't allow it to go completely dry..

Ive thrown rootless Agave pups in the ground and had nearly all of them strike after awhile...

Hope this helps...

Thank you, I will try to do that. The agave doesn't look mushy, let's see what will happen.
