Planting And Care:

  • Chilli plants should be fairly easy to care for
  • They need to be protected from frost and will do best in a sunny spot out of any cold winds or draughts
  • A South or East facing windowsill or sheltered patio is ideal Chilli plants should be kept in a small pot
  • They really don t like being over potted and will suffer from placing in to large a pot too quickly
  • Most of our chilli plants shouldn t need repotting in their first year, however if you are struggling to keep up with the watering or if your plants is 3 or more times the size of it s pot then you can re-pot
  • Just choose a pot that is only 2 or 3 cm bigger in diameter and use a good general purpose compost with some drainage
  • Chilli plants love sunshine, they originate in South America after all, the more sunlight your plant can get on fruit, the hotter the fruit will become
  • Chilli plants are greedy feeders and will benefit from feeding in the growing season
  • A tomato feed, baby bio or any other high nitrogen feed will keep the leaves nice and green and keep your plant fruiting longer
  • Apply in line with the manufacturers instructions every couple of weeks from July through to September
