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.

This really is a pretty subject to grow - and looks no less out of place in the ornamental garden as it does in the soft fruit cage.
Through the Winter months the bare stems look wonderful as they are bright red and covered with hundreds of spines that make them almost look fury. Come the Spring bright green foliage appears which pales to an almost yellow-white at the time of fruiting.
Following a beautiful show of flower clusters of bright orange berries are formed which mature to a dark red colour - all ripening at the same time. The fruits are very juicy and have a gorgeous sweetness.
