Chilli (Scotch Bonnet) seeds

    • Heat Level: 100,000 - 350,000 Scoville Units (Hot)
    • Species: Capsicuum Chinense
    • Origin: Caribbean
    • Pod Description: Traditional variety pods grow to around 3-4cm long and 2-3cm wide, ripening from green to either red or yellow
    • All seeds are germination trialled
    • Seeds are supplied in bio-degradable/recyclable packaging
    • Sow a few seeds into a tray in late February to May and cover lightly with seed compost
    • Either use a heated propagator or pop the seed tray into an enclosed plastic bag and seal and place on a windowsill
    • Once the seedling has produced two true leaves (second set of leaves) they can be transplanted into individual pots
    • Try and maintain around 20-25 degrees while young plants
    • As the plant grows, transplant into as large a pot as allows, this will determine the size of the plant
    • Once the plant has flowered and has started to produce small chillies, it will benefit from a feed of either comfrey tea or tomato feed
    • Chillies dislike irregular watering as this will sometimes cause blossom end rot (the base of the chilli/pepper rots)
