Balcony Chilli Plant Collection 1x3

  • Catalogue Code 1080-7019
  • Pack Contents: 3x 7cm Potted Plants, 1 of each listed

Get hold of this collection of three chilli varieties Cayenetta, Spangles and Lancer and you can be enjoying the flavour and intensity of chilli peppers all year round.

Easy to grow on a windowsill or balcony, this collection provides the perfect ingredients for hot dishes and salads throughout the summer. Even if you don’t have a garden you can grow these chillies successfully on a balcony or small courtyard.

Cayenetta - An excellent, mildly spicy chilli that is very easy to grow. Plants are well branched and upright with larger fruits than some varieties. It is a perfect plant for a container on the patio. Medium heat.

Lancer - The easy-care chilli. When the fruits are ripe they actually fall off so you know exactly when they’re ready. These chilli peppers have soft skins and so are ideal for drying and turning into a powder for all-year-round kitchen use.

Spangles - Multi-coloured cooler-heat fruits in whites, reds and purples make this variety both productive and decorative, and really vibrant. Excellent to add to salads and salsas for vibrancy and colour.

Gradually acclimatise young plants to their outdoor position by bringing indoors overnight and taking outdoors by day, for roughly a week after you receive your young plants. Pot on into larger containers once the roots start to show on the side of the root-ball.

Feed with high potash feed such as sulphate of potash once flowers have set to fruits and stake if needed as plants become tall.

I bought two lots of plants at the same time . The first lot arrived in good condition and are doing well. The second order arrived and the plants were positively wilting and looked unwell. I planted them and they are all but dead.
