I am growing chilli seeds in a heated propogator and the seedlings are about 8cm high now. should i start taking the lid off of them or should i leave it on?
Are they indoors or in a greenhouse?
i am starting them indoors in a heated propogator on a window sill
MGF to be honest I think it is a bit late now to start growing chillies, mine were sown in March indoors in a heated prop, they are now standing in the conservatory, GH too cold, but are all over 7" tall and showing signs of flowering. I'll post a link to our chillie growing thread some great advice on there.
Hope you find it useful
thank you, the packet said i can grow them in between april and june
Hi madam green fingers. Don't give up on your chilli plants. They may not do much this year but as they are perennial you will have a head start next year. Overwinter them in a frost free, light place and try not to let the temperature drop below 10c.
I am in the same position as yourself having planted some chilli seed late to replace ones that didn't survive. I shall overwinter them.
what do you mean by overwinter?
