  • The Chilli and Pepper seed Circle 2018

    Yes, I know I'm early but it will give you lot time to plan! New comers welcome, please feel free to add your name even if you've never saved seed before...you'll get lots of help along the way.

    Save 1 variety of chilli with 4-6 seeds per pack. Last year we had to save 6 packs of each variety.

    Please offer a variety pepper that is little interesting or unusual than your average cayenne seed - we all have a half empty pack of those in the bottom of our seed boxes...try for something a little different. We can finalise the details later on in the growing season when you have a better idea on which ones that are doing well.

    Peppers and chillies are a little more difficult to save seed, they often don't fruit and they can cross with each other. You can isolate one in the house, or one in the GH, bag the plant or a flower or use the glue method.

    # Please save seed from a good source - no F1s or from plants that have been grown from seed from a chilli found in the bottom of the fridge.

    Hopefully I will be in. The only plants that look ok at the moment are monkey face and a devils tongue so no telling what you'll get.

      Far too early for me to say.

        I'm definitely in for it this year with having to succumb to failure last!

        As of what yet, not got a clue!

        Not yet still made a decision on my grow list!

        But off work next week so will get a little "Me Time"

            Go on! Save the seeds of the first plant that sets flowers....there's often one that will flower first!

                Well yes, obviously, but you know last year I said I'd save Sugar Rush Peach, but then every flower that I bagged dropped off without setting fruit apart from one tiny shrivelled pod that didn't amount to anything. I'm growing lots of new (to me) varieties this year, but some are unstable crosses and of the rest, I have no idea yet whether I can isolate some flowers and then get pods from them.

                So in theory I would be in, but it's far too early to say.

                    That happened when I tried to save black nagas - I had to bag, wait for the flower to open, hand pollinate and bag again - it was a pain!
                    The other option is to keep one at a friends house on their kitchen windowsill

                        May I join this year? I haven't sown any seeds yet (today is the day!) so my contribution will be from whatever flowers first!

                            Me too if my varieties aren't a little too boring! I was a little late in getting up and running and missed the early start. Will also keep an eye out at the local gardeners market for other varieties.
