Coleus canina

We bought some of these plants this year to keep critters out of the garden. They worked OK. They are an annual, and I am just wondering if anyone knows if you can save the seeds or somehow keep them til next year.

Cuttings should root really easily in either moist potting soil or water. You could probably also just dig the entire plant, cut the top back about 1/2 to 2/3rds and pot it up an grow inside over the winter. These things are pretty easy to grow all in all, they just want decent light and slightly moist, well-drained soil.

RE: Coleus canina

OK - thanks. I was thinking more in the line of saving seeds. I don't really want to over-winter this plant.
