Size guide - Pack of 5 Vegetable Plug Plants 

Our vegetable plugs are healthy, strong plugs in mini-plugs of compost. Will need to be transplanted and grown on before planting out. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost.   Compost volume around 2.5 – 3.5cm deep x 1.5 - 3cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm-5cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided

Peppers and chillies are brilliant for growing in pots or in growbags outside in a sunny sheltered spot and they will flourish in the warmth of a greenhouse or windowsill too.

  • If you are growing your chillies and peppers outside, they will need to be potted on individually first and then hardened off for a week or two to acclimatise to outdoor temperatures before planting out after the last frosts.
  • Plant into large pots (at least 30cms in diameter) on a sunny patio in multi-purpose compost or into the veg patch.
  • Pinch out the growing tips of chilli peppers when they about 20cms high. This will encourage more side shoots which will in turn make a bushier plant producing more chillies. 
  • Bell peppers (Celica) are best left without pinching out the tips as this will delay fruiting.
  • Feed with a liquid tomato fertiliser or similar, that is high in potash to encourage plenty of flowers and fruits to form.
  • As the weather turns colder towards the end of the season, cover plants grown outside with fleece at night to help the fruits to ripen fully.
  • If you are growing chillies and peppers inside, on a windowsill, in a conservatory or greenhouse they will benefit from being potted on in a general-purpose compost until they are big enough to be planted into a 30cms pot.   Pinch out the shoots, as before.
  • Indoor grown chillies will probably need pollinating by hand, which is easy and fun to do.
  • Brush pollen from one flower to another with a small paintbrush or cotton bud once the flowers appear. This will help the fruits set.
  • Feed regularly throughout the growing season with a liquid tomato fertiliser.
  • Damping down the greenhouse with water to keep the air humid, helps to keep deter red spider mite.  This also helps with tomato plants too.

Special requirements - Water pepper and chilli plants at the base and not with a watering can sprinkler as this can cause the fruits to rot.
