Mr Fothergill’s Pepper (Hot) Chilli Shake Seeds
€4.25 “Price excl. VAT: €4.25”
A wide range of colours, shapes and sizes. Different levels of heat, from mild to super hot. The biggest crops are produced in the greenhouse but also grows well outdoors.
CAUTION: Can irritate eyes and skin.
For greenhouse crops, sow thinly indoors, February-April, 0.5cm (¼”) deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 7-21 days. Transplant to individual pots when large enough to handle. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Plant out May-June, to large pots, growing bags or into warm, well-drained soil in the greenhouse border. For outdoor crops: delay indoor sowing until March or April. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out 40cm (16″) apart, when frosts are over. Choose a warm, sunny, sheltered spot. Outdoor crops will be smaller and later than those in a greenhouse. Harvest: July-October.
