Yes, I know I said I was going to grow only 12 chillis, but... My excuse is that the spares are just too good to discard!
First to produce fruit this year is one of my two Turkish Sweet Pepper plants.
This is the other one of the pair - not far behind.
This next one is the one I nicknamed "Redfields Slim Red". No fruits yet, but lots of flowers, so it presumably won't be long.
This is "Nosferatu", grown from seeds I saved from last year. Beautiful foliage!
This is the "Red Habanero" that I over-wintered. It is looking a bit washed-out, so I have re-potted it and brought it out into the fresh air with the youngsters. I expect it will soon perk up.
The potting compost I have used for these is the New Horizon peat-free type, which is supposedly the best peat-free one available. It has come out top in the trials run by "Which?" etc, so I hope it will be OK.
In case you are interested in this, the pots I have used are plastic ones, most of them 10 inches in diameter. A couple are those "8 for 99p" black pots from Morrisons.
The only chillis I have NOT potted-up today are the two Bird's Eye ones that seem to have stopped growing altogether, and the tiny "Turkey Small Red" one, which is growing, but ever so slowly. Actually, I have potted this one up, but only from its Elmlea pot into a proper 6" flowerpot. Hopefully the new compost will give it a boost.
