Chilli plug plants, grown in our own nursery. Plug plants are sold as a single plug plant. Delivery starts April - May.
Our chilli plug plants will provide you with a supply of high quality, great tasting chillis which ripen from green to red. The chilli peppers are ready to harvest from July to October depending on the variety chosen. Each plug plant is posted with a biodegradable plant pot - that looks a bit like a tea bag, this unique plant pot allows you to transplant your chilli directly to a pot without the need to disturb the plant.
On delivery, we recommend giving the plan a light watering, just keep the soil moist. Transplant to a larger pot and stake once your plant has grown an additional 3-5cm transplant to a larger pot for the last time and provide plenty of support.
Height 60cm (24inches) Spacing 45cm (18inches) - although we recommend being grown directly in a pot rather than the ground.
