How to repot an Aloe Vera

Posted: 11/01/2015 at 08:46

Bizzie - what an odd coincidence I was planning on exactly the same thing today for a top heavy survivor of 8 years in a bachelor pad aloe that's squeezed into a tiny pot (and loving it it seems!) Mine is very unstable and with impending dog appearing will it do any harm to pot it now than risk it getting accidentally knocked if lept at?

Lyn that's really useful to know; due to a spinal injury I struggle with any strength the moment I put my arms above my shoulders.

Have a great time Dove!

Off to work soon myself. I'm trying very hard not to look out the window as the wind  was just awful all night I'm not sure if I want to see what has been going on out there.

Thank you all!

Thanks for the link Edd - can't have been terribly awake when I searched this morning.

Well I've not had any undue attention but just you all remember I have dirty great big steel capped boots!

Finished early today but I'm collecting his lordship so I'm sat in a certain fast food restaurant just down the road keeping warm for an hour. I can't wait to have my car back! I'd sit in his works carpark but I can imagine popping my laptop out there might look slightly dodgy!

I kept tell you all I was only 29! Unlike Dove I actually meant it. Yes I'm the one looking confused and bemused by the engines and also playing with my fire hose The article in the newspaper itself it much better: I'm going to try and scan it in later.

Looked out the window just before I left for work and noticed my other half has been dragging his electrical extension lead across the garlic. With that and his big feet its no wonder they weren't coming up! I'm going to give it another week and get some more in pots. Best option is they all come up: you can't have too much garlic!

Can anyone recommend some long handled tree loppers? It's not ideal for me to be climbing a ladder to prune the pear tree but it really needs doing.


Thank you!

Wakey wakey Lizzie! Can't have you in your night attire for the plumber!


Very windy here. Looks like Sunday will be spent clearing neighbours rubbish from my garden.
