Planting & Care Instructions:

    For best results, sow chilli seeds indoors from late Winter onwards, so the plants have a long summer of growth
    Prepare cell trays or pots with multi-purpose compost
    Sow seeds individually, approx 2 per cell or small pot
    Cover seeds with a thin layer of compost and water
    Seeds may take approx. 2 weeks before germination
    Once seedlings are a few inches tall, they may be transplanted to larger pots
    Chilli plants need the long warm days of the summer in order to fruit
    Plants may be brought outside once warmer weather arrives, or kept in a greenhouse / cold frame
