We sow our seeds at the end of December and put into a propagator under lights overnight. Our plants are about 8 inches tall and will be going into a heated greenhouse, along with the chilli plants we cut down to sticks and these are already producing leaves and in some cases, flowers.
The only downside is that the greenhouse gets packed with plants that are taller than me (5ft 3), and I have to pick them as my other half is colour blind.
We also use chilli focus and also something that my husband puts in the water for the plants called Superthrive, literally just a drop and it really helps with the growth. We also pollinate the chillis with a small brush, and leaving the greenhouse door open, we get bees in there too.
