What size pots to use for growing chillies and peppers in a greenhouse?
Last year I was using 10" (25cm) for peppers and tomatoes. Slightly larger perhaps for Aubergines. I don't grow chillies; don't see the point in eating food that makes my eyes water
Hi. I've found any pot around 6" or over will do really, depends how big you want the plants to get and what types - last year numex twilight types seemed happy to only get to around 2 foot tall, whereas my friar's hat and oruzco purple were much taller. I've even had good crops from more than one plant per pot when I didn't want to separate close seedlings.
