Plus bring your coleus in from the cold and learn how to make the most of green space in the city
Plant this Fatsia ‘Spider’s Web’ is an indoor-outdoor plant with glossy leaves that look as though they have been dusted with icing sugar. Inside, they do well in hallways and other cool air spots; outside, they thrive in shade, away from wind. They will reach up to two metres inside or out, but respond well to being cut back.
Try this If coleus are among your fading summer bedding displays, they don’t need to be composted. Pot them up individually, reduce foliage by half and bring inside. Short on space? Take stem cuttings and place in a jar of water: add a drop of houseplant fertiliser now and again and they will thrive.
