what size pots for chilis and peppers in the greenhouse?

    I find 25cm diameter is fine.  I do work up to that size though by re-potting peppers/chilies a couple of times as the roots begin to fill the smaller pots.  Potting directly from seedling into final size pot seems to give them a bit of a check in growth.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    I planted mine in 6inch pots, but the deep ones like roses come in.
