Our Feedback
Following an attack of cellulitis around my ankle, I developed a painful leg ulcer that was slow to respond to conventional treatment. Then I read the article on your site about Aloe Vera, and promptly ordered a large plant, which arrived quickly in excellent condition. No, it was not an overnight cure, but perseverance over a number of weeks resulted in a completely healed ulcer, just as promised. To guard against reinfection, I rub a little juice on the vulnerable area each night. Also, I suffer from contact dermatitis, and find the juice is excellent for taking the itch out of a rash, and promoting healing. My heartfelt thanks for the information, and for the super plant which, potted on into a large container and standing by my kitchen patio door, grows bigger every day. I will be recommending Aloe Vera to all my family and friends - definitely a 'must have' plant.

These traditional hardy border carnations are richly perfumed, unlike carnations you find in the florist or sold on garage forecourts which are imported from Colombia as spray carnations.

These really are something special - as you will discover! Personal callers will see them in flower here outside in the summer. Each plant grows into a robust clump from which you can take 'slips' or cuttings to increase stocks of your favourite colours. We first grew these in 1958 - long after the Victorians had discovered their worth. In the 1850's ten plants sold for 1 Guinea (about £80 in today's currency).

Can be grown in pots and moved into the greenhouse or sun room for late autumn and early spring flowering. We supply a lovely rich balanced colour selection that includes shades of pink, crimson-red, yellow, white, purple and intermediate shades and tints, and the traditional striped types not found in cultivation these days.

  • Flower June to September.
  • Grow to approximately 18" (45 cm) tall.
  • Thrive in full sun and a well drained soil.
  • Plant 10" (25 cm) apart.
  • Flowers are edible.
