Garden Vince replied to Regina Bartlett's discussion Warning: Allergic Skin reaction from Blue Agave on my hands in the group Cactus & Succulents
"I get an irritation on my hands and forearms when I prune my dwarf pines. I prune mostly because of sun damage in the hot summers. Lots of red dots and itchiness. Gloves are a good thing in the garden but they do take a bit getting used to."

Warning: Allergic Skin reaction from Blue Agave on my hands

I trimmed a large Blue Agave without gloves and used a saw.  The juice from the Agave got on my arms and hands and I had an immediate allergic reaction.  I washed my arms and hands and used caladryl lotion.  Since then, my hands have dried and cracked.  Now I use bag balm and arnica and wear gloves at night.  My hands have slowly healed but are still very rough.  I am a musician and now I wear gloves when I garden.  I now dislike Blue Agave very much.Has this ever happened to anyone?  See More

Pink Astilbes and Ferns

"Thanks Charlotte and Lorraine. These astilbes and ferns are against the north side of the house, so they are in shade most of the day. Lorraine, you're right that astilbes (and ferns) will scorch if they get too much hot sun."

"Thanks for the Nola Kelsey extract. It really tickled my funny-bone and my wish-bone at the same time! Had chickens in the past and love them madly, despite the mess!"
