START CHILL­IES IN­DOORS

Garden Answers (UK) - - Gourmet Grower -

WHO WOULD BE with­out a pot­ted chilli plant on the pa­tio or green­house bench? Even if you’re not a fiery fan (and there are cul­ti­vars to suit any taste) they must rate as the pret­ti­est of homegrown har­vests. For the win­ter-weary gar­dener there are dozens of cul­ti­vars to choose from, and they also hold the crown for be­ing one of the first seeds to sow in the new gar­den­ing year.

Gar­den­ers with a heated green­house or warm con­ser­va­tory can get a head start by sow­ing in late Jan­uary, oth­er­wise wait un­til mid-Fe­bru­ary and be pre­pared to use a warm win­dowsill be­fore mov­ing them out to an un­heated green­house.
