IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
CHECK Dormancy Table to SEE WHAT'S GROWING & WHAT'S DORMANT

We remove some of the soil when we ship. Succulents are unlike other plants in that there are usually
no issues with a plants out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them
into a pot with moist soil. As a general rule, plant in a pot twice as big as the root ball.

Regards watering: give
the roots opportunity to start reaching down for water.
Please check to see if your plants should be watered at the time of year you purchase.
Some don't get water in winter and some no water in summer.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

The photos on our website represent what plants look like when grown.
We are not selling the plant in the photo.
Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time.
A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes
so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

Sale plants may require additional freight payment

Aloes

Click on photographs for enlargements

There are over 250 species of Aloes in the world, mostly native to Africa. They range in size from little one inch miniatures to huge trees. The most common Aloe is Aloe barbadensis better known as Aloe vera. Aloes are semitropical and can not endure frost like temperatures. They should be planted in full sun to light shade in well drained soil area. You can grow aloes indooors if you have a well lighted area or sunny window. Grow them indoors in winter and put them outside in summer. Strange as it may seem the frost of this past winter caused so many plants to flower and that included my aloes. My mature aloe plants have produced flowers in the form of a tall branch with peach flowers. Aloes store water in their leaves and roots. Hummingbirds love aloe nectar and I love having the humming birds around.Aloe Vera, which is widely known and used for its curative properties, is but one of hundreds of Aloes. Aloes range in size from tiny miniatures, just a little bigger than your thumb, to trees which grow 30 to 40 feet tall. The miniatures and small Aloes will want filtered light to morning sun. The larger Aloes can be given filtered sun or early morning, very late afternoon sun in desert climates. In most climates they enjoy a lot of full sunlight. Let them go somewhat dry between waterings. This is a strong, durable plant. Best to provide frost protection to prevent possible scarring. This can be accomplished by covering with old sheets, or other cloth or even newspapers.
