Chilli and Pepper plants.

Posted: 25/05/2013 at 10:49

I have only got peppers which are 'F1 Redskin' and chilli's 'F1 Gusto Purple' I should have thought about getting a bit more variety, but I also have tomatoes and cherry tomatoes on the go, lemon seeds and some sun flower seeds germinating at the minute, sunflowers have just popped up

I know what you mean though Andy, bloody weather is just so inconsistant!

This is the first year I have tried to grow these kinds of plants, i've got many others on the go, as I like to experiment and plant different kinds of plants.

These are a few of my too many chillies, I believe they are coming on 7 weeks old now.


These are my pepper plants, the one on the right is very small as it was dying off because I transplanted it way too early and shoved it out in a cold plastic greenhouse, where most the leaves died. I've since brought it back inside with the rest and it seems to be coming back to life

Note also, I have removed the cotyledons (first leaves).

So really, I'm just looking for comments and tips from those of you have experience with these plants.. A few questions:

When should I be looking to transplant them to a bigger container / pot?

Should I plant them deeper so they aren't so tall and spindy?

Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

Looking good, i've just bought a strawberry planter for £15, so you've saved that much.
