Although Sydney’s weather supports flowering plants all year round, there are times of the year when colourful leaves take their turn to shine. We had some wind and rain that battered the blooms overnight so when I went outside this morning, I found the colour of the Coleus warm and welcoming.
I have been propagating one for our charity sale. It was a matter of potting cuttings or putting them in water and wait for the roots to grow, then pot them up. Either way requires little care but they do take time to grow into a good size for market.
By the end of April they will be available for sale at the Huge Plant Sale to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
