I've just started to grow some chilli plants at home from seed. I'm not a particulary experienced, I planted the seeds in a peat based compost (75% I think) and they are in a small propogator.
The seeds have just started to come through which is great, I saw a video on GW though that recomended using a non-peat based soil for chilli plants. When I transfer the plants to pots when the leaves are a little more developed would it be advisable to use a non-peat based soil?
Just wondering if it is likely to shock the plants/kill them/if I can still get good results sticking with my original peat-based soil.
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
Hello saybut, I,m growing chillies in my propagator too. Mine have just appeared today, well, 2 of them. They are in a multi purpose compost that does contain some peat. I shall be transplanting them into the same mix. I didn,t have a problem last year using the compost.
