How to Grow Chillies
Discover how to grow your own delicious, flavour-filled chillies at home
Harvesting your Chillies
When your first chillies have grown, cut them from the plant while they are green. By doing this, your plant should continue to fruit right through the season (which is between July and October).
If you want a better flavour, allow your further chillies to go red before harvesting.
If you moved your chillies to a greenhouse and they are struggling to ripen because of bad weather or poor sunlight, bring them back indoors and put them back on the windowsill, ensuring you keep the house warm.
For Best Results:
- Use tomato feed weekly for better growth.
- Check leaves daily for aphids, treating if needed.
- Freeze or dry your excess chillies so you can enjoy your crop all year round.
