Aloe Grow Guide

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

Additionally, plants that require a lot of the same nutrients as their neighbours may struggle to get enough for themselves, producing lacklustre crops.
