    Often known as the first aid plant, aloe vera has been grown for its healing properties for years - and is now often used in cosmetics and 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.

    The plant is supplied with a hand-cast aluminium planter so you can create your own display. With a rough-hewn finish reminiscent of natural rock, the bowl makes a perfect addition to rugged, naturalistic garden schemes.

  • 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.
