: We mention the suitability of growing chillies outside because some seed companies use phrases such as “Grow on a sunny patio” etc – and they will, but in many parts of England you will find that your outside grown crop is a fraction of the crop if grown inside.

Sow seeds from February to April. Sow seeds individually in small pots of seed sowing mix, 10mm deep. Place pots in a propagator or seal inside a polythene bag and place at 21-25C until after germination.

Transplant seedlings into larger pots when large enough to handle and grow on a windowsill or plant outdoors when frost risk has passed, 45cm apart. Water and liquid feed during dry weather.

Feed the Chilli pepper Krakatoa with either tomato feed or seaweed extract when the fruit are starting to grow.

Sow Chilli Pepper seeds on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed sowing mix and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place seed trays in a propagator at a temperature of 18-25C (64-77F) until after germination, which takes 7-10 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination.

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into individual 7.5cm (3″) pots of compost and grow on in cooler conditions. When plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, transplant them into grow bags and containers, or plant them in well prepared beds of fertile, moist, well drained soil. Chili peppers may be grown undercover in a greenhouse or polytunnel, or grown outdoors in a sheltered position in full sun. When growing chilli peppers outdoors, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to transplanting them. Space pepper plants at a distance of 50cm (20″) apart.
