    Keep trying Jack. It's getting warmer now so you'll have better luck. I've been so busy I've hardly down anything. Wish I'd done them all in Jan ...not even sown a tomato yet!

    The tri colour variegata looks pretty enough for my Mum's patio. Need to get me some o'that for next year.

    Most of the Sugar Rush flowers that I bagged dropped off without setting fruit. Two set; the pods stayed small and puny, though, compared with the open pollinated ones that grew fat and handsome. One has subsequently dropped off. No more flowers have come and presumably they won’t until the first crop has been removed from the plant. However, they are taking forever to ripen. The pods formed at the same time as the Reaper, Scotch Bonnet, Aji Omni and Peter peppers, and they are all ripening whereas the Sugar Rush are just resolutely lime green and showing no inclination to change.

    I have an Aji Omnicolor plant isolated (it’s the only chilli plant in the office) and fruit is ripening on that now, so I might have to submit that instead of the Sugar Rush. Still, it’s only early in the season; hope is not yet lost. I’ve also bagged some Scotch Bonnet MoA flowers and they seem to have set very well, so hopefully I will have some of those too. (The ripe ones are on another plant which was cross-pollinated; the other plant is a bit behind due to having been topped and stripped but it does seem to be fruiting prolifically now.)

    I had epic fails with Prairie fire! I was hoping to grow these this year and two packs of seeds both failed and not a signle germination, all my other chillies gave me an almost 99% germination rate so must have been duff seed but absolutely gutted not to have been able to grow these this year.. need to source myself a plant from somewhere if anyone has a spare?
