Our Aloe Vera has been kicked out of the house His Lordship wasn't too happy when you had to be careful closing the curtains as so not to catch its overhanging bits but now its filled the windowsill and has taken to attacking you when you come into the room (its over 110 cm across and over 80 cm tall including the pot).
It has a few pups that I will give chance to grow a little before I pot up so that it can carry on in its own little way but I am so upset not to be able to have it in the house (there's just no room!) It survived eight years of university with his lordship and best mate living above the cooker and quite often being covered in grease, muck, and dust. It was either drowning in foul smelling water or forgotten for six months.
Does anyone know if I stand even a tiny chance of having this as a greenhouse (unheated) plant over a Yorkshire winter?
Pat E. I hope things don't smell too bad there!
