Pruning, A Necessary Evil
Do you remember my coleus plant how it was tall and top heavy? It was leaning over, not able to support itself.
I pruned it and notice now all the shoots growing closer to the base.
Sometimes pruning is a necessary evil.
Above, in the picture to the left, that was the #coleus plant before pruning. The other pics show that I planted the parts I clipped off. I was able to get at least six healthy plants, with one other dying. Pruning your plants makes sense, no matter how scary it seems and how beautiful the plant appears before.
