    Default Chilli & Pepper Seed Circle 2016

    Feeling hot, hot, hot

    Anyone interested? We all love our chillies perhaps try saving just one variety each? 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 (I will find some links).

    # Please save from named interesting varieties only and no F1s.

    me too.. NG, I was suggesting the same at the start of the main circle. we send one pack and one SAE... I try to share my tomato circle and chilli circle seeds to planetologist as well.. as any way I send seeds.


    may be at the time of mid spring when we are busy sowing squash and cues..we may have one circle for all cucurbita family as we need few varieties of each..ideally I suggest NG to run one seed circle like that

    Sorry, didn't mean to cause confusion. I just meant the tom circle and the chilli circle as Scarlet is organising both. I have no issue sending them separate if that helps the organiser

    I have no issues with doing a circle but we have a few going this year and don't wish to bombard people
