Friday 8 December 2017 • This coleus has taken off in response to the regular tip pruning and recent soaking rains. It’s grown so much it’s time to prune it and take cuttings. #Variegated #coleus #Variegatedcoleus #plectranthus #backgardenbc #foliage #subtropical

@brightcolours what kind of light do you given this plant. I hear sun can deepen the color or fade them.

Have you brought them indoors for the winter Leslie? @lesliecole49

No, Rachel, I've let them go to seed and will collect the seeds. I don't have indoor storage for everything I need to bring in plus the houseplants that are coming in too. @rachelbrooks

That's the trouble isn't it Leslie? I don't have the room indoors to overwinter things or have a greenhouse, shame as there's a lot of tender plants that I'd love to try 😏 @lesliecole49

I have a lot of plants in containers still since I don't have much ground dug yet. Some things still can be dug up and stored, but alot will go indoors. I have a "little girls greenhouse" for shelves during the winter that will be a seedling greenhouse come early spring. I'm still new to all this and do get overwhelmed with "What do I do with this now" lol @rachelbrooks

Tuesday 16 May 2017 • These cuttings have been growing in water for a few weeks. I planted out the three with good root growth and put the other one back in water. #Variegated #coleus #Variegatedcoleus #plectranthus #green #coleus-propagation #backgardenbc #subtropical
