Its uniquely colored and shaped leaves add texture in the garden and containers. Great garden performance in sun and shade. Flame Thrower coleus are naturally compact and growing them is a breeze!
We also love them in mixed containers because they don’t take over their companion plants. They also make a great season extender, thriving all the way into late fall!
Some planting and care tips
Plant after danger of frost has passed. When planting in containers, be sure to use a lightweight, well-drained potting mix, such as Good Dirt Potting Mix. When planting in the ground, make sure the area is well loosened and use Good Dirt Soil Conditioner to add to the planting area and blend in thoroughly.
All Good Dirt mixes contain peat moss for organic matter and water retention, BogBits to add airspace/porosity, Plantbiotics- the beneficial microorganisms to improve the nutrient uptake by the plant’s roots and an organic-based plant food.
Feed plants at least once every 3-4 weeks using Good Dirt Plant Food. Good Dirt Plant Food is derived from a seed extract and is all natural. Unlike petroleum-based fertilizers, you can feed as often as you like without the risk of ‘burning’ the plant roots and foliage.
After planting, water thoroughly and periodically when soil feels dry to the touch in the top few inches.
