We are offering Three (3) Red Scotch Bonnet Chilli Pepper plug plants ready for potting on and growing on in frost free greenhouse or on sunny windowsill ready for planting out as soon as last frosts have passed
Scotch bonnet is one of the most well known pungent extremely hot varieties originating from Jamaica chilli peppers. This variety matures from green to red. The plant grows bright red fruit and produces masses of fruit, 4-6cm long on 24-36in plants. Long growing season, most suitable for greenhouse, polytunnel, conservatory production.
Apache, with its compact habit, is ideal for pots and containers as well as on a warm sunny windowsill. Traditional Chilli plants are usually tall and top heavy requiring staking and protection from even light wind. Apache remains compact and only requires a little support - in fact, a mixed container with some complimentary flowers will be sufficient.
Transplant plug plants as soon as they arrive taking care when handling them potting into 7.5cm (3in) pots.
Plant in the greenhouse in individual large pots, or 3 plants per growbag when 20cm (8in) high.
Can be planted outdoors, 45cm (18in) apart once all frost risk has passed
Suitable for the vegetable garden, allotments and containers.
Be prepared to water well and supplement feed with high-potash feed during season. Regular feeding is recommended.
