Care Guide

Good disease/pest resistance

Pepper plants can suffer from Red Spider Mites, Blossom End Rot and Aphids. This variety has good resistance but these are the common pepper problems.

Water Often

Full sun in a sheltered position

Full sun in a sheltered position

Chilli plants need 6-8 hours of direct sun every day. If not positioned in a greenhouse or inside space then place in a position sheltered from chilling winds such as a south-facing wall.

Rich, well-draining soil

A good-mix to use is three parts quality compost to one part topsoil.

Feed Regularly

Feed every two weeks with a good, all purpose liquid fertiliser for the best results https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0513/3428/3424/files/pruning_3x_4d3eaf73-f629-45e0-87a5-6f14f5f005fc.png
