Coleus

Coleus

Soon the gardeners will face the toughest time of the year. Snow will cover the ground and several months of inactiveness lays ahead. For some of us it is a blessing and a time to rest. Unfortunately for me the winter is simply too long.

First months go quite well. I spent time with the gardening magazines dreaming and planning. Ordering seeds for the spring – always too many in my greediness. Luckily tablets have opened a whole new world to me. We do not have that many gardening magazines but now I have found the ones in the other northern countries – different and interesting. I have fallen in love with a magazine called Garden Making.

Then I get restless and uneasy. Reading is not enough. I simply need to grow something. Last winter I found a solution and bought a grow light for plants. What a delight! But what to grow that was a problem. Coleus came in to my mind. So this year I have been able to enjoy several different coleus varieties grown from the tiny seeds. I think I will continue my trial this year and try few new colors.

PS. I use Zinio for ordering my magazines. It has worked well and been easy to use.
