    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 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.

    The aluminium pot supplied with this plant is a contemporary take on an antique Indian vase. It has beenhand spun and etched in India to a traditional design.

  • 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.
