If you remember, last summer I purchased two lovely Hedgehog Aloes for my front porch. They were the perfect plants, they looked beautiful and thrived in the tough conditions on our front porch.
When we made our last trip to Maine, one of them was throw in the moving truck (the other stayed behind with a neighbor). We put it on the back porch with the intent of bringing it indoors. The weather turned cold and I completely forgot.
OOOOPPPPSSSSS. Thankfully, I realized it in the nick of time. The plant was frozen solid, but not enough to kill it. It’s now residing in our living room barely clinging to life.
I need to cut back the frostbitten foliage and it will look a little better. I’m confident it will pull through. Perhaps by the end of this summer it will once again be a stunning feature in the garden.
