Pruning Agavae Plants

Zone 2640 | Anonymous added on October 19, 2018 | Answered

We have had lots of severe frosts here in NSW & our agavaes which were huge were severeley bitten, I have cut off the bitten "parts" of the leaves to aprox 4" buts, but I am now thinking should I take the buts right off to let the new leaves have room to come through ? thank you, Judy

    It would be a good idea to go ahead and cut the affected leaves to the base. New leaves will sprout from the top of the plant. Here is more information on pruning cactus and agave. Methods will apply to both: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/cacti-succulents/scgen/cactus-pruning-info.htm
