Care+
When there is no longer a risk of frost and night temps are above 12°C, the plants can go outdoors - but not before they are hardened off. This means slowly acclimatising them to outside by standing them in the shade, one hour longer every day. Pot up after a week - 3 plants can easily thrive in a large pot. Now they can be stood in the sun. Or, you can plant them directly into the garden in a sheltered, sunny spot. Plant them in a row, spaced out at 35 cm apart with about 70 cm between each row to allow the Chilli Peppers space to grow well. Pinch out the growing tips to promote stronger branches for fruit bearing. The side shoots must also be removed. Chillies grown outdoors need all the energy they can get so that the top shoots can grow and form flower buds.
Chilli Peppers will easily pollinate themselves but (bumble) bees will help too. Fruiting will be no problem. Chilli Peppers react positively to the same fertiliser used for flowering pot plants. If cultivating in a greenhouse, your Chilli Peppers will grow taller so will require support from either canes or vertical strings.
Give extra water in periods of drought. Keep the bed free of weeds. This will help the plants to develop and grow well.
