St David's plant sale in aid of Llamau today. Went well. Waiting for an amount raised.

Did you grow the coleus from seeds? I sowed some and not a single one came up

@joanboston Yes I did, and had a really good germination rate. Perhaps you had a duff batch of seeds?

Possibly. Got them from suttons

They're usually really good. Perhaps out of date? @joanboston

#coleus #seedlings starting to struggle. I'd have thought they would need potting on at some point. But imagined that point to be a lot further on, if that makes sense...

If they are in the biodegradable pots they can stay in them and be potted on when they are much bigger pit and all!

Thanks @carolecuttingitfine , I usually use toilet roll cores and do just that. They just seem to have really slowed down now, dropping leaves too.
