Coleus Chocolate Covered Cherry Seeds
Coleus have always been a great plant for adding long lasting colour to the shady border and they also make a dramatic foliage plant for summer pots and bedding.
Planting & Harvesting
Sow & Grow
Sow: indoors thinly from February to April, in pots or trays of seed compost. Just lightly covering the seed. Maintain a temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) and keep moist. Thin (prick out) to individual pots as they develop 2-4 leaves. Harden off before planting out in June allowing 12in (30cm) between plants. To grow as indoor plants: sow at any time as above, pot on individually as they develop.
Hint's & Tips
Remove flower buds as they appear to encourage further leaf development and bushier plants.
