Stoke your pots and beds with rich shades this summer with various plug plants from Dobies – my favourite is without a doubt this sublime Coleus mix!

Available in Chocolate Mint, Crimson Gold and Chocolate Covered Cherry, these eye-catching blends are well-suited to borders and large containers. Professional landscapers adore these plants for their appearance and reliability.
