Sick aloe vera - need help ASAP

Posted: 24/09/2015 at 18:43

Mine did a similar thing, so I put it into the greenhouse and left it alone. I thought I'd killed it but no, lo and behold, it over wintered in there and started sprouting fresh new leaves in spring. I gave it a little drink and it has flourished since. Pansyface is right neglect it and it will thrive! Good luck

Be aware of different types. The one we were given for our school garden was poly over a frame and, despite careful pegging out the rain gathered between the poles supporting the roof and bent the poles, obviously I'm not on site all the time, but it was a shame as this weakened tunnel fell foul of the wind and is now no more. 

It was lovely when it was new got very hot tho. Good luck and enjoy, just be aware of the weather when you site it.

If you've let them go to seed then leave them and transplant the new seedlings in spring, if the parent survives cut that back in spring too and hopefully you'll have a lovely display. ????

Click on the little tree icon at the top of the reply box and it gives you the options to browse for your picture. There might be a size upload limit but you'll know how to resize won't you? Good luck I'll watch to see how you get on. 

Fuchsia ID please

Sorry, no not Tom Thumb, his petals not so long and pink, Tom's colouring similar to the afore mentioned Mrs Popple! Plus this one seems too big, maybe a point of reference would have been useful on the photo, a coin, or a ruler, to aid identification? 

Fuchsia ID please

I thought it might be Florence May Joiner, but it all depended on how old the flower is, and the size etc of your plant, however, I must agree with Lisa J it is a lovely specimen. 

Fuchsia ID please

Not Mrs Popple, colours not strong enough and flower not the right shape. However, not sure what it is. Sorry not to be much help but will think and come back if inspiration strikes! 

What do I grow?

Mesembryanthemum and osteospermum don't think any one has mentioned love them because of their Names! Hope everyone having an operation keeps well and recovers quickly to enable them to get back to their calming gardening tasks.
