    Often known as the first aid plant, aloe vera has been grown for it's healing properties for years - and is now often being used in cosmetics and as an alternative medicine. It's a low maintenance, evergreen succulent, with fleshy leaves that form a low rosette - and if you're lucky, it may produce a greenish yellow flower in early summer.

    With a rough-hewn finish reminiscent of natural rock, these stout cast aluminium bowls make a perfect addition to rugged, naturalistic garden schemes.

    Each bowl is individually cast by hand, resulting in unique imperfections that give them a beautifully unpolished charm.

  • Home care: Water moderately when growing, and sparingly when dormant through the winter months. Feed with a balanced liquid fertiliser 2-3 times during the growing season.
