I am a long-time lover of Coleus, but have recently re-kindled my obsession. My husband wants to know when I think we have enough!
I have been trawling the web for as many unusual varieties as I can find, but have been restricted by the majority of the plants/seeds I like being in the US. Whilst I have been able to buy some seeds from the US, it's all dependent on whether the seller will ship to the UK.
Anyway, Dibleys over here have a fab variety, which I now own Sticking tongue out and I have plenty of varieties from seed.
Just wish I could get some more of the exciting ones now!

Anyway, enough rabbiting on! Look forward to getting some info and advice from you guys and gals Smiling

Welcome to the NGA jojomonsta! I only grow a few coleus from seed, purchase most of mine as plants.

Hi Hostasmore
I hope to do more with cuttings next year, although from seed is a little more exciting - you never know if you might find something unusual!
There seem to be few places selling plants over here, other than the standard varieties.
Will see what I can get my hands on in the spring though!

Welcome to the NGA ! Welcome!

I like to grow coleus from seeds for that same reason, -- that you don't know what will show up !
I like to grow seeds from mixes of varieties.
