That's too bad roseycheeks.
Sometimes, gardening -- indoors or out -- is just a series of trial and error. That's why you might see me going on and on about the successes. (I probably should post more about the failures too, because those are also learning experiences.
It's almost time to start coleus from seeds. I never tried to keep them alive over the winter when I grew them. Back then, I took "them" at their word, when they said to "annual/treat as an annual". Are there any stems that are still looking strong enough to take cuttings and root?
