    How to Grow

    Chilli's are a fast growing annual/short lived perennial depending on the particular variety and your climatic conditions. In warmer climates or using hot houses in cooler climates chillis will grow as short lived perennials meaning you can get 2+ years from a chilli plant. Frost or cold winters will prevent this from happening and you will more then likely need to re-plant each season.

    Chilli's like very fertile well drained soil in a sunny or part shade position. Sow seeds during late winter in a hot house or during spring & summer without a hot house. It's best to sow in pots, cover seed with 3mm of soil, keep moist until germinated then transplant seedlings at 5cm to garden position space 60cm apart. They can also be potted into a larger pot where it will fruit happily.
