Aloe Polyphylla

One plant that seems to have really come to the public attention this year is Aloe polyphylla. A significant reason for this has been the excellent displays at various shows by Trewidden Nursery culminating in a Gold Award for them at their first ever RHS Chelsea Flower show!

I had planted our first A polyphylla a few years ago in a gravelled area under the old Yew tree in our garden, someone who will remain nameless managed to step on it and squish it to death. Death by a Size 9 rather than cold or snow! They are quite a hardy plant as our replacement plants have demonstrated, hardy to at least -10C (14f) for short duration’s, although not hardy to my left foot unfortunately.
