And if that came up as a load of question marks to everybody else, it was meant to be a smiley emoji face but obviously the site didn't like it haha

Hello all and happy new year! So this year I've took the plunge and gave myself a bigger challenge... I've took on an allotment plot. Couldn't tell you what size it is exactly as I haven't measured it yet but I do know on the particular allotments they class the size of it as being a 'half plot'. There's quite a bit of preparation work to do on it, i.e some parts are a bit overgrown and the bottom of it where there's a metal link fence is over ran by all sorts so I know I've got all that to sort out before I can have a go at turning the soil etc. I already have plans to erect a poly tunnel after I've done the prep work but it's just everything else about owning a plot I'd like tips about. Like what I should grow, should I bother with making raised beds and putting them in or should I just stick with planting straight in to the ground for now? Just any tips of the trade would be much appreciated! Thank you.

Yeah I attempted to grow them this year but left them in the propagator too long and they sadly died, however they were from the same place as the ghosts so probably weren't legitamate seeds.
I'll check that website out tonight after work, thanks.

Thank you both for your replies, so you're saying that maybe because I was growing jalape??o and bhut jolakia both in my greenhouse, they've cross pollinated and that's why? I mean the jalape??o plant and chillies are fine it's just the bhuts.
I shall give that website a look up anyway.. Plenty time to prepare for next years offspring =)

Evening all, I wrote about this in a different thread but not sure if it was seen, Basically all year I've been growing a couple types of chillies, some of which were ghost chillies (bhut jolakia) or should I say they were supposed to be! Long story short, they certainly were not what they were meant to be. I bought the seeds off eBay after reading quite a few happy comments, these people had obviously not started growing them yet. The purpose of this thread was basically just to ask if any chilli heads on here could recommend a reliable source in which to get the correct seeds from? Or if anybody would like to kindly donate me some of which they have been growing this year that would be awesome! I'm afraid I could only offer jalape??o seeds in return unless anybody wanted to grow my apparent ghost chillies themselves? They're a large red chilli with a mild heat to them lol. Thanks in advance.

Just thought I'd bump this thread now it's coming towards winter.
Unfortunately, what I was sold as bhut jolakia seeds early this year, I've now found out they definitely are not! I've put a pic on a different thread but will try get it on here too to see if anybody can ID whatever it is I've grown but they're large chillies with minimal heat to them.
My jalape??os have a good kick to them though apparently!
Wondering if any of you lovely people would be kind enough to send me some of your different types of chilli seeds? At least I know then I won't be getting jipped lol
Thanks in advance =)

Well, it was confirmed this weekend that the bhut jolakia I was growing which I thought was too big to be bhut jolakia... Was infact not bhut jolakia!
Pretty gutted I was sold the seeds on eBay claiming that they were when infact they were not!
So I have a question, could anybody point me in the right direction to getting the right seeds from trusted places so next year I don't waste most the year growing something which isn't what it's meant to be?
I have no idea what it is that I've actually grown but they're large chillies with a small amount of heat. I'll upload a picture when I'm next on the computer as I can't do it on my phone (which by the way, if there's a moderator reading this.. It would be a pretty cool idea to add that feature for us phone webbers =) )
Thanks in advance ladies and gents.
