I am trying to rebuild my coleus collection... i don't have much in the budget for coleus this year, nor the time to do the 200+ cutting setups i used to be able to do. too busy growing little kids, work, and planning a family wedding this year.

I'm thinking 2 to 3 cuttings each, about 3-4" long.

anyone want to trade?

I have:

Ivanhoe
trailing queen
elfers
inky fingers
Langostino*
Lime Shrimp*
Gold Anemone*
Henna
Molten Coral*

* These are from the under the sea series.

Also if not trading would pay for postage if anyone would be willing to share.

Happy Spring! Now it just need to get a bit warmer around here...

are you anywhere near media, pa 10963? my brood of little boys keeps me a little grounded to nearby areas...

i potted up some of the rooted cuttings, so meeting up would be better

i think we met at atlock farms one time. maybe we should do a field trip? havent' been in a few years... have to contact ray to see how he and the coleus are doing.


take care,

I haven't been there since we met either.. I was chatting with the owner of Atlock on facebook.. he lost his whole supply of coleus .. the same as I did.. during the power outage after the storms.. I am not near there.. but we can work something out.. a field trip to Atlock is always good

that stinks! i can send you cuttings even if no trade... i lost most of my collection only due to lack of time to care for them. they usually fare ok under domes with heat mats, but not this year with power losses and cold. Ray (Rogers) at Atlock had such a great collection of plants (especially coleus). going to check our your coleus thread. i broke down and bought some coleus locally here, but didn't spend a whole lot. reigning in the urge to go crazy with coleus this year...

hopefully we can meet up this spring or maybe summer. if not i'm ok with shipping cuttings too...

talk to you soon,

Joy I have sent you a private message.
I love the coleus you have and would like to trade for it with anything I have.

I am interested in cuttings or seeds.

thanks :)
