Aloe care checklist
They prefer well-draining soil, or sandy succulent potting mix. As long as it drains well. A muddy, constantly wet or clay soil will not be suitable. If planting in a pot, use gravel or stones at the bottom of the pot as an extra drainage layer, before filling with soil.
If planting in the garden, the hole should be 3 - 4 times bigger than the root ball. You can add some compost & bonemeal.
Water after planting, and then only when the soil feels dry
Generally small aloes need more watering than large ones.
Aloes respond well to feeding before flowering season and after with a balanced organic fertiliser.
