Plant of the Week: Chilli pepper

Plant of the Week: Chilli pepper

Chilli peppers are great fun to grow and make gorgeous plants with their lipstick-red, purple, yellow or orange fruits and brilliant green foliage. There are varieties to suit all tastes, from super-mild Padron and banana peppers, little hotter than a sweet pepper, to mouth-blistering hot cayennes, habaneros and nagas.

It’s too late to sow from seed, but luckily in the garden centre, we have ready-grown plants to take home and pop into containers in a sunny spot. Keep chillies as warm as possible: a greenhouse or windowsill is ideal. Start feeding with liquid tomato feed once they flower and you’ll have dozens of fruits to enjoy by late summer.

We offer help and great advice
