I don't have much success with Coleus :roll: although I'd love to be able to grow them well.

Dibleys have a pretty good range http://www.dibleys.com/dibleys-shop/Any ... --454.html
Best regards

I've had plants from Diblleys, which were excellent - ordered 28-Jan-2012, arrived 03-Apr which seemed really late last year!!!! as in I had hoped to grown on and take a round of cuttings off them in time to have plants for a late May planting ...

Pictures of the plug plants, and varieties I bought, on my blog:

I also grew some from seed (although might be a bit late now as they grow as very small plants initially) from Moles Seeds. Wizard Scarlet and Wizard Velvet Red - 500 seeds for £5-ish has kept me going for 2 seasons :)

P.S. If you can buy 10 trays of plants (don't all have to be Coleus) then Kernock would be a good supplier of Plugs:
