GROW GUIDE Aloe

Aloes are extremely diverse landscaping options, combining perfectly with rock features, perfectly suited to potting and lending themselves to mass planting or grouping with other flowering Aloes of different types or colours.

Aloes are indigenous succulents, which mean they are perfectly adapted to the South African climate, conditions and challenges, whilst being extremely water-conscious. These hardy plants come in myriad colours, forms and sizes and many of these are very frost resistant and flower all-year-round. There are plentiful and pretty new aloe hybrids of all sizes to choose from as well. Click here to download our Aloe Grow Guide

GROW GUIDE Mushrooms

Up to 4 harvests can be expected from each log. The growing process should be started within one month of purchase to obtain the best results. Your 1st harvest will weigh between 140g-150g but will get less for 2nd to 4th harvest. Depending on outside temperature, it would take between 6 to 10 days for your 1st harvest. 2nd to 4th harvest could take between 2 to 3 weeks to grow. You cannot have more than 1 opening to grow more at once as they will use each other’s nutrients and then they will not grow to give you big mushrooms. The growth medium is sawdust & can be worked into your garden when the log gets to its end of use.
