Green house chilies
« on: May 04, 2022, 17:45 »
Good afternoon everyone, 
preparing for our holiday (3 weeks in Greece) and I have some chilies in the greenhouse ready to plant in the raised bed, I have some plastic boxes care of Wilkinsons wild bird suet food, I expect you know the ones. 
Should I cover the chilies which are 2" tall with the boxes thinking the inceased humidity would be benificial or just leave the chilies to the elements?

Cheers,  Tony.
I may be growing OLD, but I refuse to grow UP !

Id be more concerned about cooking them, should we ever get any sunshine than the cold at night. Id leave them as is.

The chillies aren't growing very fast...at some stage do I nip out the growing tip?
Cheers,  Tony.

Leave them to get on with it, just give them a good feed.

The reason I asked I reading the "Gardener's World" guide and it said nip out the tops at 20cm, so after converting I find that this is only 8"(inches)!  I find this hard to believe.  Thanks and cheers.  Tony.

(in my opinion  :)) Pinching out can help make bushy if they are that size by March, by this time of year it will just stall the plant.
