Sowing Info

  • 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)
