Manage your Landscape Investment
To all interested in the Spiral Aloe, I will offer 1 gal plants for sale again June 1 2015. There will be a limited number of 5gal plants then also.
Are you looking for a learned landscaper who knows how to manage your landscape investment by providing solutions to the challenge of horticulture?
I can write management plans for your personnel to execute which minimize labor and water expenses, apply bio-logic materials which cultivate the life of your soil, consult on tree malaise, all without the conflict of interest so common in landscape businesses today.
I bring 30 years of hands-on experience to every project. Landscaping is a dynamic process, requiring guidance by a person who can read the plants' clues and react to the message.
Spiral aloe seed is available from the August 2014 harvest and priced at $150.00 per 1 teaspoon, about 250 seed (not scarified). Seed is stored dry at about 38F. Make inquiry, I will request funds via PayPal prior to shipping. International shipments will add $50 for USPS tracking fee and California sales tax of 8.75% will apply.
Seed Propagation of Aloe polyphylla Notes and Discussion
Since my return from Lesotho in 1977 I have been fascinated with all aspects of this species, the individual plant, habitat, and ecology. I started with a small can of seed harvested from several populations and began experimenting with seed germination. Little did I realize that this endeavor would give me such horticultural knowledge that influenced my primary profession as a Landscape Contractor and Arborist.
There are many "gates" to open to propagate A.p. from seed. Asexual propagation is not possible because in the genus Aloe leaves do not have a meristem at the base so only stem cuttings can be used. Since there is no stem this is not an option for nurserymen.
