Hi all,

Sorry to barge in but I have been looking for coleus bedding plants. I used to have these in the summer but it looks as if they are either no longer produced or out of fashion or something. I have asked at my three "local " garden centres and told they hadnt seen any for a long time and I visited a fourth today ( further away) they didnt have any either.

Am I too early for them?

Does anyone know where I might get coleus plants for bedding out? I am in SE Cornwall.

I have bought seeds but it says they should have been sown in March but I have put them in anyway.

Thanks for information.

* There are some for sale on Amazon.
* The RHS Plant Finder will probably give you some other mail order
* You might find them under the names Plectranthus scutellarioides and
Solenostemon scutellarioides.
