    Often referred to as the first aid or medicinal aloe, this plant has been grown for its healing properties for many years - and is now often used in cosmetics and alternative medicines. It's an evergreen succulent with fleshy, serreated-edged leaves, which form in a stemless rosette, and if you're lucky, it can produce clusters of greenish yellow flowers. This decorative (and useful) plant, comes with a stylish pot cover, so once unwrapped, it can be placed straight out onto a table or sunny windowsill.

  • 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.
