Early Summer

The flower spike of this Aloe add to any garden. The plant seems to thrive on neglect and being pot-bound. I think needs to be protected in an unheated greenhouse in winter, but I have grown it outside without any covering. Too much wetness may cause rotting. I allow it to almost dry out in winter and bring it out after all frost has gone. I have now left it outside covered with only a corrugated plastic to keep the rain off and it has come through a frosty and cold winter well.
