Does anyone have a mail order source for this aloe -- preferably a vendor that you've used and liked.
Silverhill Seeds has A.ferox and many other species.
Here is a link that might be useful: Silverhill
I like Silverhill Seeds. For Aloe seeds I also like another place "FROM SEEDS TO ALOES FOR THE GARDEN." It too is in Africa, but I like it for three reasons:
1. The seeds are less expensive (as low as 50 cents a pack), and
2. The seeds had better germination for me, and
3. The Web site has great photos of aloes.
I won't give up on Silverhill, but for aloes I'll go with the other place. I see the lady (from SEEDS TO ALOES FOR THE GARDEN) on the Yahoo Aloe Forum, she's quite knowledgeable.
