How to grow chillies from seed


Overview

Chilli plants will thrive on a sunny window sill or in a greenhouse. They have a long cropping season, so you could still be harvesting fresh chillies in December. You will need just two small pots to sow your chilli seeds; use a good quality seed compost and keep them in a bright place to ensure they germinate.


Do it: January - May
At its best: July - August
Takes just: 10 minutes to sow the seeds
