Hello beth south facing windowsill is good for growing chilli I start my tomatoes peppers and chilli on our window sill. I start early......which people dont agree with but it works for me! They are easy to grow they just need a while to get going. I grew mine last year in the conservatory because they like to be hot. But think you will be fine. Purple sounds funky....something interesting

I don't hold much hope verdun. Germanation was great but lost loads early on. Sown thinly too! Since then ive done nothing but worry about the survivor' will be a miracle. I'd be happpy if it was monocarpic I could collect sow and then play your game next year!

Yeah nut heard scotland is the best place to grow. Just have a damp shaded part of the garden which would be great for them. Would be a dream to grow them! plus lincoln is a little like the tibetan mountains!

Has anyone grown from seed? Its my first time trying to grow betonicifolia. Had problems with damping off, have six seedlings still kind of happy, but not really much growth at all. My question is how do I grow them on? In shade or in full light in warmth or unheated.......plesse help!!!!!!
