Soil The soil should be rich and free-draining. Integrate compost and well-rotted animal manure. A fortnight before planting. Chillies will also benefit from an application of lime.

How to Plant Propagate seeds in individual cells, leaving them outdoors during warm daytime conditions and then indoors at night. Transplant once the daytime temperatures are regularly surpassing 20 degrees as the plant is intolerant of frost.

Spacing 30-40 cm

Depth 0.5 – 1cm

Companion Plants Basil, Parsley

Approximate no. of seeds 12-15

TLVPC Note: We source all of our seeds locally and in small batches to ensure they remain at their maximum viability for germination
