Pepper (Chilli) - Holiday Cheer
This type produces little fruit which completely covers the plant in colour, from white to deep red. The peppers are hot and beautiful.
Sow indoors from February to April, in soil 0.5 cm deep, in separate pots if possible. Pot on in late May outdoors either in containers as patio plants or in a well protected site. Peppers can be slow to germinate so allow up 35+ days. Compost should not be too moist to prevent the seeds from rotting. All chilli peppers are very sensitive to the cold.
