Chillies & peppers
« on: October 03, 2017, 22:03 »
I've had an excellent   crop of chillies and peppers, some are still green though is it too late to expect them to ripen? have been growing them in a unheated greenhouse

If they are in pots, could you bring them indoors?

Texas if you are in the south of the UK they may well continue to ripen in the greenhouse for another couple of weeks

Have already had temperatures as low as 7C here, Sunny  :ohmy: that's why I thought it would be better to bring them in  :unsure:

They will continue to ripen, but get them in or off the plant if real cold threatens. If it stays mild then you could sill be harvesting for a few more weeks. Been a great year for Chillies this year!

So have we, but the outdoor chillies still seem fine. It won't get warmer though........

 I have had a good year with the chillies and peppers as well, i got mine potted from B & Q planted them out in the tunnel then  got  over run with them, ive been giving the to the local  curry house,
I also done well with the melons  so i  saved  some of seeds from one of the melons and just to try them i planted
 6 of them and now they are 6" high going to see how far they will go, the tunnel is holding 45 degs overnight i
