Cutting back coleus question
I planted some coleus seeds last spring and the plants have done great in the shade of my oak tree. Now they are about 3' tall and keep producing flowers that I trim off. What I am noticing now are that the lower leaves are dropping off of the plants. So far the stems look and feel nice and firm, not mushy. Even though the top leaves are large and colorful, would it be best to cut them back and let new leaves come out from the base. I think there are even new leaves wanting to sprout from the nodes about a foot and a half high. If I do cut them , where would I do it, how far down and can I root the cuttings?
