Gardening, with a passion, everyday!

I had heard that coleus were great for cuttings, but was one plant I hadn't tried yet.  I had 6 different varieties this last season and I wished, like I do every year, that I could save some.  I really didn't realize how easy it was or would be to grow cuttings of a coleus.

I am lucky enough to have a garden window in my kitchen, kinda like a mini greenhouse, to be able to keep plants happy and thriving in the winter.  These cuttings were only about 3 inch tall when put in the pots and are now  1 to 2 feet tall.

All these cuttings have been in my garden window since September 28th, 2011

  1. I love coleus, too. Aren't they beautiful? I had several varieties last summer and planned to save cuttings but for one reason or another, didn't. I wish I had! ~Debra, Gardens Inspired

  2. Coleus are one of my favorite plants to add color to the garden in summer. I didn't even think to take cuttings! Yours are beautiful!

  3. Coleus plants are so much fun! Yours are beautiful! AND just since Sept! Amazing! You certainly have a green thumb, my friend!

  4. Aw, I love it! I have always thought coleus is so pretty! I am so happy I found your gardening blog wandering off from the pet blogger hop! :D I may make it to spring after all - thank you!
