Product Description

Coleus have been grown by generations as fun and easy houseplants, as well as fabulous summer bedding - especially in town centre displays where they were practically a guaranteed sight in park displays of the seventies. Now however, with the introduction of more robust and colourful variations, coleus are becoming a garden must-have to brighten adventurous summer planting designs.

The 'Wizard' series of Coleus has a simply huge range of leaf colour combinations - too many to describe, but you can expect to see an exuberant mix of lime greens, reds, pinks, velvety purples, creams and yellows. Plus, the advantage of foliage bedding is you can see what colour the mature plants are going to be so you can make dazzling combinations of colour to suit your own style.

Coleus love sun, and they are at their very best as a subtle foil for other brighter coloured bedding and perennials. Dot them into mixed pots and tubs, or between more floriferous bedding in borders and window boxes, for a summer-long colour extravaganza.

Supplied as 20 garden ready plants, for you to pot up and grow on before planting out when all risk of frost has passed.

Plant Information

Top Tips

Naturally branching, so no need to pinch out the tips.

Care Guide

  • Unpack plugs immediately, and stand them in water for an hour.
  • If you can’t do this, they can sit in their mini greenhouse for a week if upright and not too wet.
  • Plugs may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post but they’ll quickly recover.
  • Put them somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • Garden Ready plugs are large enough to be planted out in their final positions.
  • Plant directly into flower beds or containers when all risk of frost has passed, prepare the ground well, removing weeds and digging in some compost or well-rotted manure if your soil is not already rich.
  • Plant approx. 30cm (1ft) apart to allow them room to grow.
  • To do this, dig a hole large enough to accommodate the root ball and plant to the same level at the top of the compost.
  • Refill aound the roots, supporting the plant gently as you do so, taking care not to damage the stems.
  • Firm the soil and water thoroughly.
  • Water thoroughly after planting, and keep the soil watered regularly (but not waterlogged) until your coleus produces new growth, then you can reduce to regular watering.
  • Apply a general-purpose fertiliser every 2 weeks when the plant is in full growth.
  • Pinch off any flowers at the base - they're not the plant's main attraction and removing them helps produce more leaves.
  • Over winter, and before the first frost, pot up your coleus and bring it inside for use as a houseplant.
