Yes Bekkie i have 2 really great chilli plants, between them they've given me hundreds of chillies, i was thinking if bringing them in the house this winter.... If i insulate my greenhouse really well but don't heat it, will i be able to grow anything in it?

Thank you, Victoria, I'll sprinkle some on the soil on a sunny day then. To bad it rained today, I'll wait for the sun!
