staten island, Ne
|I would like to start coleus plants from seed and than leave them in pots in my heavily shaded back yard. 1. I was wondering if the heat will be an issue in starting the seed (It will be covered to prevent evaporation)? 2. Will I be able to grow it outside till it gets cold and then bring it inside or should I just grow it inside? Thank you for your help.

|Coleus starts readily from seeds so in a protected place such as you describe, you should be able to grow coleus from seeds right now. Heat should not be an issue with them. Coleus is frost tender so either move the plants indoors or save some seeds to sprout indoors so you can enjoy the plants all winter long. Best wishes with your coleus!
