Does anyone pinch out the tips from top and side shoots of the pepper plant. Last year I had beautiful huge peppers but only about 4 on each plant. Would pinching encourage more.

WEATHER this week

Snow falling, leaves of everything wind scorched through the night, the few daffs that had stated to open are flat on the ground, so will cut them and bring them in for my mum. Nowhere near ready for planting out yet, the winds here are always strong, last night even worse. Oh! the benefits of living in a high remote area? No neighbours for a mile and half though, so I suppose that's a benefit.

Fantastic garden lizzie. I have a big garden that was very overgrown and neglected , it's mostly grass that was easiest for my dad to cope with, but I am gradually getting round to making beds and planting flowers. It's hard work for one and beloved is not keen.

Bob is absolutely right, and it has made new growth, all ready for next years buds to form.

I have shifted mine to the greenhouse now I have potted them on but they are no where near ready to go outside. So it should be ok Joyce.

If you wait till it flowers, it will seed itself all over the garden, I planted one last year and at the end of summer there were dozens of them, you could put some up and discard the main plant if it's too big.
