Coleus have been attracting a lot of attention in the last few years and why not? They are eye-catching and easy to grow — and thanks to several new series from Terra Nova Nurseries, they are now even easier because they are bred for no-pinch, no-PGR production.
“We want them to be easy,” says Chuck Pavlich, director of new product development at Terra Nova Nurseries. “It’s the philosophy behind most of our Terra Nova plants — to be the easiest to grow at all stages: for the liner producer, the wholesale grower, the retailer, and ultimately, for the end consumer. We want our plants to be less expensive to produce because of labor costs and chemical costs. And that also makes us more likely to be picked up by more customers.”
