GROWING CHILLIES – CONTAINER SIZE MATTERS

http://learn-how-to-garden.com

Have re-edited this film in HD as one of the fundamental things you can do to affect the size and taste of your chilli crop is to use the right size container and no time is more pertinent than now.

    I’ve been wanting to do that comparison myself.  Interesting how much difference a bit more size makes.

    Thanks Mark, I’ve managed to get hold of some second hand large pots based on your recommendation on this video. I might even add a film of me potting them up/in their final position. I really do learn alot from your videos.  Thank you

    Hi. At what point is it too late to re-pot them? Since killing off my courgette by transplanting it, I’m weary of potting things on once they get to a certain size. At the moment my chill is about the same size as the first one in your video. Is it too late to put it in to a bigger pot?

    I wouldnt pot on until they are about a foot tall because keeping them slightly constrained makes them flower. Its the balance between constraint and then allowing enough room to give you a heavy crop.

    No its not too late. Chillis are in fact not annuals so if you pot it on now it will just grow bigger.

    Do you mean to over winter in which case the main thing is to prune the chlli back by about two thirds, reduce the watering and just let it tick through the winter.
