no good for this year...too late to start planting.

Yeah too late now, and you're better off using soil, those things retract and damage the roots if you forget to water for a few days.

Nice posting, but a Cold from me. Okay, it's a good price for the product which might work out quite a neat gift, but 39p buys you a pack of about a thousand seeds from Lidl or PoundStretcher who also sell 4pks of seed trays (enough for 200 plants) for about a quid, and compost for a not a lot more. Buy some respectable size plant pots with the remains of your fiver, and you end up with more plants, bigger plants, healthier plants, and way more chillis. Or, you can just buy three already mature chilli plants from Homebase for the same price.

Sounds like a hot deal to me. :w00t:

Agree with most of that. B&Q had some Scotch Bonnets the other day (if you can take that kind of heat!) for about a pound. They weren't that big but would take at least 6 weeks to get to that size from seed.

I started mine about a month ago, didnt use the stuff that came with it as the pots and soils are rubbish... I have a good few seedlings growing up quite nicely in the greenhouse...

Anyone know the time to grow these and get any chillis off them?

Wilkos are pretty good if you want the more common varieties - as are sainsburys. Apache, cayenne, jalapeno, scotch bonnet, habanero, sweet banana etc should all be fairly cheap. You could still plant now but it'd be for sake of growing them to overwinter (unless we get an incredibly long summer, combined with heater propagator etc in which case you might get a handful of chillis per plant).

Which variety?

Which variety?



was all the ones in the pack above, but i have looked and it seems like 70-90 days is the sort of time scale.

Good info for growing here
thechilliking.com/gro…de/

Tobasco = up to ten days to germinate, and top end of that scale to fruit - 90 days is reasonable.
Demond red = 80 days or so
Hungarian should mature in about 65 days
Jalapeno =70
Anaheim = 73

Nice - I think I'm passing by a B&Q on saturday anyway, so I'll have to investigate this. Have yourself a bit of rep for the tip off
