Sow seeds 5mm deep in pots or trays of moist compost, store in a warm place at an approx. temperature of 18-20°c, do not exclude light as this helps the seeds germinate. Ensure that the compost is moist at all times. Once all chance of frost has passed the plants can be transplanted into growing beds or patio tubs outside, harden off first. It would also be useful to cover with cloches for extra protection.
Chillies do best in very mild conditions, therefore it would be better to keep them in a greenhouse or indoors. Pick fruits to encourge more to grow.
