hi chaps,could you tell me at what stage to prick out pepper and chilli plants ,or should i just leave them thanks
Hi marksman, I grow them in small modules, 1 seed per module and transplant into 3 inch pots when they are about an inch tall. If in a seed tray I would prick them out at the same stage. They seem to prefer to be gradually moved to larger pots in stages so mine are transplanted into 5 inch pots when the roots reach the sides and bottom of the small pots and then into their final pots when the roots reach the sides/bottom of the 5". When transplanting, the whole rootball is moved without disturbing the roots.
hi bob should i take the tops off or is that not good
I wouldn't - see my reply to your other thread.
I agree, don't pinch out the tops. If they are leggy, then plant them deeper, roots will grow from the stem.
