Hi, things crossed the chillies will start to flower soon.

Thanks for the pics Neil I was beginning to lose confidence in my chilli plants, as they are so small but with a bit of heat they're starting to grow.

I grow chilli's and peppers in a GH amongst other stuff. Peppers are flowering and I've some fruit beginning to develop but they are really behind compared to last year.

Potatoes

Now. I'm itching to delve into a bag.

My 1st earlies are Winston and Pentland Javelin, been out since 4th April. Estima and Wilja 2nd earlies and Desire, as main, were planted out mid April. Red Duke of York were the last to be planted out at the beginning of May.

Not tried Winston or Estima before.

PR. Yes,some don't always flower, few of mine get to the stage of flowering but I leave them the full term or longer especially 1st and 2nd Earlie's as despite not flowering they do die back and keep longer in compost than in the kitchen.

The large one's are just as tasty, have trust... and you get a better crop 

What are you sowing now?

If you sow your biennials now...

... these are plants which will go out before the first frost, giving them time to develop a root system and be itching to grow in spring... weeks before anything sown on a window ledge in February, March or April......and biennials flower in their second year...I sow them as next years annual bedding plants...

Fairygirl.  I've since built my own L shaped free standing trellis, with posts cemented in and a base for the GH. I do go back to the same guy for materials, as he's very reasonable but lesson learnt.
