The Chilli Challenge February Update
Whilst it’s been quiet at the plot in the few weeks things are progressing at a pace with the chillies. They arrived in the post at the end of the first week of February and were sown a couple of days later in small peat pots. Four pots per variety, two seeds per pot and into the heated propagator set at 26°C. Two weeks later all with the exception of the Hungarian Hot Wax all have started to germinate.
These photographs of the Cayenne were taken yesterday.
On a final note if you’re using plastic labels please make sure you use a waterproof pen otherwise you will look at the pots just as you are about to go to bed and realise that the ink is disappearing before your very eyes. A lively ‘conversation’ will then ensue along with some frantic rushing around to remedy the situation. It doesn’t make for the most restful end to the day.
If you’re growing chillies and would like to post a link to some pictures on your blog or facebook page in the comments then please do.
