I Live In Zone 8. Can I Plant Aloe Vera Outside?

by Madeline M.
(Zone 8)

I live in zone 8 and would like to plant some aloe vera in the ground.I have at least 15 to 20 of them in pots and they are very healthy and large. about 8 of them have outgrown very large pots and I would like to put them in the ground now. Should I wait until late winter or early spring? I do have about 6 in the ground now and they do well.

Planting Aloe Vera Outsde

I too live in Zone 8 and have a lot of Aloe Vera. I have not had much luck with it in the ground unless it is mulched heavily and covered during cold spells.

I usually move mine into the greenhouse in winter. However Aloe doesn't need as much sun as you would suspect and the first year mine turned pale from too much sun in the greenhouse.
