Flowering

From Early Summer TO Late Summer

Coleus will produce somewhat insignificant tubular flowers on flower-spikes if these are not removed. (Remove the flower-spikes as they appear to promote leaf growth.)

 

Propagating by seed

Sow seeds in compost and cover with glass or film until seedlings appear

 

Propagating by cuttings

From Early Spring TO Late Winter

Can be propagated easily by softwood cuttings at any time of the year

 

Planting out

From Late Spring TO Early Summer

Plant out after all risk of frost.
