Coleus questions, questions, questions......
Went crazy with all the cool varieties of coleus the garden centers are now selling, and now it's time to think about getting them through the winter.
1) They grow poorly in my dark little house, get large and leggy, and bloom themselves to death eventually. If they are cut to the base, will they regrow, or do I need to take new cuttings when the plants get too old?
2) Most of my tropicals tough it out overwinter in a makeshift greenhouse kept at about 50 degrees. Is this too cold for coleus?
3) If I dig up the root balls from my outside plants after the first lite frost, ( like I do with my Passiflora and Brugmansia) will they sprout new plants when brought inside?
4) Anyone have suggestions about the best way to overwinter them with limited space?
