Chillies and Peppers grow much better in a warm greenhouse and smaller plants will do well on a sunny windowsill. Chillies and peppers are best grown in fresh compost in either growbags or pots.
Plant three to a grow bag or one to a pot. If you're planting them in beds, the spacing is dependant on the variety and your baby chillies will have all planting inctructions included when they arrive. If in doubt 20cm is a good distance.
Pinch of the tips of chilli plants when they reach around 20cm in height which will encourage the plants to produce more fruits. You'll need to feed both chillies and peppers frequently, especially before it starts to flower.
Water your plants regularly and give them a liquid feed every fortnight. Chilli peppers may require some support - train them up a bamboo cane or look at our range of Plant Supports for some long lasting plant support solutions.
Keep an eye out for Aphids, Whitefly and Spider mite as these can damage your chilli pepper plants.
You can harvest these chillies at whatever stage you like - they will start out green and gradually change colour. The more you pick them the more the plant will keep growing more.
