Hi, we have a chilli pepper pot black, a lovely looking plant, but most of the chillies are deformed, looking like they have a collar of petals, and only one has grown to a harvestable size.
It was originally in the greenhouse and we brought it in as the weather cooled. It sat on a warm sunny windowsill and now sits on the dining table in the same sunny room, just away from the cold of the window.
It has been fed and watered so I'm just wondering if Scotland is too cool for it.
Is the stunted growth likely to be due to the conditions or could it be a problem with the plant itself?
Could we use seeds from any of the small chillies to try again next year?
Thoughts gratefully received!
