Story Title: Chilies
Episode: One
Broadcast Date: 3rd March 2012
Presenter: Chloe Thomson

Some like it hot, Chloe likes hers sweeter, while others just plant them to enjoy their bright and bold splashes of colour. Chilies are a great addition to any kitchen garden and there are hundreds of varieties to choose from.

Tips and Facts

  • By planting Chilies in pots you’ll be able to move them around the garden enabling you to add splashes of colour where it’s needed.
  • Mix a good quality organic fertiliser through the potting mix and give your new chili plants a regular dose of liquid seaweed to promote healthy growth.
  • Chilies are members of the same family as tomatoes, potatoes and eggplants so avoid growing them in the same spot where you grew these plants last season.
