When to sow
When to Sow Volante Hot Red Chilli Pepper Seeds
February to April
Where to Sow
Sow seed on the surface of a free draining compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite and place at a temperature 18-21°C until seeds germinate.
What to do next
Prick out seedlings when large enough to handle into 7cm (3in) pots and grow on underglass. Once plants reach 10cm (4in) high transplant into 15-25cm (6-10in) pots or hanging baskets and grow on a sunny patio . Feed once a week with tomato fertiliser once first fruits have set.
Late July to October
Move containers and baskets outside to a patio once all risk of frost has passed. In autumn move back undercover to ripen any remaining fruits.
High in vitamin C and beta carotene (pro-vitamin A).
