Trimming a Cold-Damaged Aloe

newbie added on June 25, 2011 | Answered

My 12-inch potted aloe stayed on patio too long last fall, tips of leaves froze some. They've dried/healed now, but look bad. Can I trim off the dried tips safely? Should I cut back to live plant or just shorten the dead part?

Just trim away the dead areas. Cutting into the live parts of the leaves will only open up the plant to the possibility of disease.
