    Blimey that looked brutal. Might try it on a couple of mine to see what happens. They're a lot more spindly and delicate than that specimen though!

    I pinched out the tips of my chillies today but they're no where near the size of those. They were from a hanging basket kit from Aldi and I've got them hanging up in the conservatory. Did anybody else get that kit? There were 6 seeds in the kit and they all came up. I have 3 in the basket (instructions said to thin to 3 in the basket) and 3 in pots .

    Might take some pics in the daylight and get you experts to have a look as I don't really know what they should look like.
