Cambridge agave seedlings shared after rare flowering plant dies - BBC News
Seedlings from Cambridge University Botanic Garden's giant agave that flowered after 57 years - and then died - have been left out to collect.The 4.5m (14.5ft) plant was cut down last week, after blooming last year.Staff collected seedlings, saying they wanted to "share the agave love".The agave vivipara flower "spike" appeared in June 2019 and grew so tall it almost reached the glasshouse roof.
It flowered for the first - and only - time after keeping gardeners waiting for more than half a century.Staff had been tending the agave, a native of central America and part of a family of plants from which tequila is made, since 1962 but the long-awaited flowers, which smelt like broccoli, were "not as pretty as people might expect", they said.
Agaves are generally referred to as "century plants" as they can take up to 100 years to flower and are monocarpic, which means t... Jun 19, 2020

Little royals Prince George and Princess Charlotte received several gifts from fans, including an inflatable pink flamingo.Charlotte also received an extra special present from a 6-year-old royal fan called James Heather, according to The Mirror. Heather's mother told the site that her son had been "starstruck" by the young princess. Per Heather's mom, "When they left the church, Kate came over and said, 'Are these for Charlotte?' and then James said 'Yes,' and handed them over... Charlotte looked really shy and coy, but you could tell she was happy and then she said 'thank you.'"The Mirror shared photos of Charlotte's reaction to being asked to give her flowers to a royal aide. Needless to say, she did not look impressed, and decided to keep hold of her gift.

But Christmas has come a little early for CUBG's greenhouse team as the plant has just come into bloom. The downside is however, that it absolutely stinks.
In the wild the plant's natural pollinators are carrion flies and beetles, insects that feed on rotting flesh. To attract them, the plant creates a similar smell. In fact it's been likened to "a herd of a thousand dead elephants" and is one of the most overpoweringly smelling plants ever. CUBG aren't newbies when it comes to smelly plants though, and you might remember when they had...
