Coleus not looking good

Yes,they need warmth and lots of light -  treat as annuals, but you could also take some cuttings - they root well in water.  You can try some now or keep the plant just ticking over during the winter and take cuttings in the spring.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

  I still haven't planted out all  the ones that have been in pots for two years though   .........

Neither have I - three pots of species tulips - the free ones from Wyevale about 3 years ago - I will find a place for them this autumn ......... won't I?

Hmmm - lots of noises going on across on the hill across the way - sounds like scaffold poles being unloaded, squeaky wheelbarrows etc - someone must be having some building work done ... I've looked but there's a tall hedge in the way - all I can see is the flashing light of a lorry

Good morning lads   if either of you is in the bulb-planting mood there are some tulip bulbs on my kitchen worktop that need to be planted amongst the wallflowers in my front garden ...................... I'm visiting Ma this morning, but plan to make a cake later
