Some of next years #coleus and #iresine plants in the making. Now is a perfect time to start taking cuttings and put in a jar of water to root. I strip of all the leaves bar the top two pairs and the largest set left, I cut in half to reduce transpiration #tip #free-plants

I've done this before and the problem I have is with the lighting in the house (no green house) they all turn a green color on me and either take forever to get back to the original color or don't go back at all! So I've given up doing that, I'm assuming that's not what happens for you?💘😍

No they are potted up on a bright windowsill indoors and left to their own devices. I don't have room in the greenhouse @ShelleySnyder

I was just reading back through your posts to see why you were off @keely (I miss so many posts on here and struggle to keep up) .. Bless you, that's a painful one to have. Seem to remember a work friend having a frozen shoulder many years ago and had to have cortisone injections. Sending you some healing 🤗🤗🤗

@vec drs mentioned the cortisone injection I'm hoping to avoid those I hate needles! Bit of light gardening is helping the physio side of it at the minute to keep it moving its the sleeping at night that's painful tablets knock you out though they are very happy pills 😂😂 thanks sweetie 😘😘
