Hanging baskets

No, I'm afraid not.

Grass needs about 20cm soil beneath it minimum, and would also be very prone to drought/flooding on such a surface.

I find that the white one is just as much of a spreader once it's established.

Yes, they should.

Give then a few feeds and some water to encourage them - there's still plenty of time to get another good show.

Is my Aloe Vera healthy!?

It sounds like the lower leaves are simply old and dying.

If it's only happening to a few bottom leaves and the upper ones are healthy, then it's normal and your plant is growing nicely.

Don't try watering - if a plant is shedding old leaves, nothing will plump them up and you'll just rot the roots.

Yes, and a bit of extra water helps things along, too.

I agree with nutcutlet - it's a big tree, which means it has a large root system that has been lost, and this is the worst possible time of year to try and move it. Sorry!

A good idea from Lyn.

I cut down into the ground a few inches beyond the plant with a spade to its full length every few weeks - that means that any new runners are easy to remove if they've managed to escape.

Otherwise, a deep bottomless tub buried level with he ground's surface also works.

Now there's irony

And try and train him/her to go in a designated place, away from your plants.

Dog pee will kill bushes, let alone soft plants.
