Feeling Hot Hot Hot! Let's get the pepper party started!
- Start seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before last frost date.
- Sowing indoors: seeds need plenty of warmth to germinate. Use a seed tray or some pots with moist seed compost and flatten the soil down. Sow a few seeds on top and cover with a fine sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. When your chilli seedlings are big enough to handle without breaking, gently transplant them from seed trays into individual pots of compost and grow them on until they’re large enough to transplant them to their final position.
- Note: gradually acclimatize seedlings to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days before transplanting outside.
- Spacing: place seedlings 50cm (20") apart in the ground.
- OR direct sow seeds outdoors in a sunny, sheltered spot after all danger of frost has passed into prepared beds of fertile, moist and well draining soil. Plant seeds 1/4 in deep; cover lightly and water in lightly.
- Germination: 10-14 days; optimum soil temp 75-85ºF. Cooler soil temperatures slow germination time.
- Containers: to grow chillies individually, by transplanting them into 2 litre containers, or plant them into grow bags; allow three plants per bag. Place the pots or grow bags undercover in a warm greenhouse, conservatory, or polytunnel.
- Peppers will start growing green then turn red
- Harvest chillies: use a sharp instrument to cut the peppers from the plant
- Seed Count: 20
