seeds to plant in containers
Fruit & veg
Please can you help me please.
I only have containers.
Can you advise me what is suitable for containers and can I sow seeds etc..for next year or Christmas?
What seeds/plants did you have in mind ? Evergreen/perennial/annual ? Have you considered bulbs ?
What size containers ?
Are you siting in sun or shade ?
I have large deep containers.
I have low wide containers.
I would like flowers that bloom year after year.
I have both sun all day.
I'm very new to growing anything.
I'd suggest you look at bulbs and perennials then.
I don't think Christmas would produce very much if you are in the UK but you could make a start with some dwarf daffs ( scented ) , Hyacinths ( again scented ) for the Spring and then think about buying some perennial plants.
It's difficult to offer specifics because you may want to keep to a certain colour scheme or indeed you may dislike certain colours.
You could always fill your containers with annual plants next Spring until you have had a think about your permanent planting.
Your location and "mini climate" in your garden would also be a deciding factor on what would thrive as would the amount of time you have to look after your containers - ie watering and feeding. Containers always require more maintenance than plants in the ground.
Do these chilli's look ready for harvest.
I'm not sure what variety they are. Thank you.

That one looks as if it’s changing colour so is ripening ... you can use them when they’re green if you’re cooking something that requires a green chilli. However to develop its flavour fully I would wait until it’s changed colour.
