    Oh, and the chillies I am looking for are called red spur chillies. They are a Thai variety similar to Tabasco that are made into a paste for a lot of Thai curries. Haven't been able to find much info about them here in the uk.

    welcome farmer jon and welcome to the uk ,where abouts are you based ? i guess this must be abit of a shock to the system for you weather wise, looking at the link you put up they dont look like super hots so thats good for you as you might be able to start them abit later on and still get some crops ,if you still have some seeds left i would try starting seeds ever 3-4 weeks ,are you growing them on your windowsill all year or moving them after the frosts have finished ?

    I'm based in Bristol. I'm not sure at this point if I will windowsill them all year or move them out to the balcony. I was assuming that they would do best on the windowsill even through the summer. How do chillies do here outside post-frost?

    Thanks for the link, I think those are the ones that I am looking for.

    You pretty much need to decide whether you support Bristol Rovers or Bristol City as to whether I give you any more help... (born in Bristol = and not really, well, probably)

    they will do fine outside after the frosts im going to move mine around may up to my greenhouse ,the main problem we have here are the shorter growing season and thats why everyone starts them off now as they need 8-9 months growing before they have chillis that are ready
