@mellybobs Mel do you put them in gritty soil when doing cuttings and water from base, don't over water they prefer to be drier!

Morning peeps unfortunately this lovely coleus succumbed to the winds yesterday thankfully I took cuttings last week so hopefully I can over winter them for next year. 💨🍃💨 Stay safe in those winds peeps, have a good day.😊
