Aloe Arborescens - can't bring it indoors...

Hello

Would my large aloe arborescens survive the winter in a pop-up cold greenhouse please?
I can't get it indoors; it's too heavy for me to manage.
I'm in the south west, and apart from last year, winters are pretty mild.

Thanks!

Are there any other hardy aloes apart from aloe striatula?

I'm intrigued as to whether there are other aloes that are reasonably hardy in the UK?

Ideas and suggestions welcome.

Aloe striatula vs Bamboo

Well that's the problems, the Bamboo in a pot is forcing the Aloe Striatula over on its side. I've staked it with a bamboo cane so it will grow upwards, will this realistically work, or is an Aloe striatulas natural response to fall over?
