This is a fickle and decieving month .
Those of us who live in the north are lured by warm temps starting in April.
May is here already and days in the 80's tempt us to put out our plants.
I know better.
My livingroom is overcrowded with coleus plants and cuttings.
Its so crowded it interferes with the remote for TV.
I planted 5 coleus outside just so I can see TV and the front garden.
Everytime I go to a nursery and see people heading toward their cars with bedding plants I want to stop them and tell them of the cold nights with 30 temps,not to mention the freezes in mid to late May.
This is what happens to coleus when night temps are below 50 and it even snows.
