T&M's easy starter plants are delivered ready for planting at the correct time so that you can enjoy bigger, earlier and tastier vegetables. Chili peppers may be grown undercover in a greenhouse or polytunnel, or grown outdoors in a sheltered position in full sun. Pot up young plants and grow them on in warm frost free conditions. When plants are well grown transplant them into grow bags and containers, or plant them in well prepared beds of fertile, well drained soil. When growing chilli peppers outdoors, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to transplanting them. Space pepper plants at a distance of 50cm (20") apart.
Feed and water pepper plants regularly throughout the growing season to prevent the flower buds from dropping. Taller varieties of chilli peppers may require staking. Provide a thick mulch of organic matter around the base of the plants to help conserve moisture and reduce weed growth. In greenhouses, maintain high humidity by damping down paths daily. Harvest peppers singly by cutting them from the plant by with secateurs or pull the entire plant when full of red peppers, and hang upside down in the kitchen for use all year long. Peppers grown outdoors must be harvested before the first frosts.

Chilli Pepper Collection - First Time Buyer
By Laura Lunt 03-06-2011
I've grown a few standard types of Chili plants before, bought from supermarkets but wanted something a little different this time. This Chili collection looked amazing and I loved the variety types and different strengths in hotness.
All 6 plants arrived looking very fresh and healthy, they've now been planted up in a large tub and are sitting on a morning to mid afternoon sunny windowsill. Having only received these at the beginning of May (a month ago), they have doubled in size and I'm just starting to see the first flower appear.
