Hi there, the affected buds are mostly on the outside branches on one side where various small birds (tits,sparrows etc) stop when feeding from a nearby hanging feeder. I have not seen a squirrel but you never know. 

                 Thanks Tony.

Hi silver surfer, there are no hairs of any kind on the stems,it is in a east facing window and grows really well easy to strike cuttings and prune.

I think this plan is a coleus but could you please tell me if this is true and should I let it flower.  Many thanks Tony.
