    Default Chilli & Pepper Seed Circle 2017

    Yes, I know I'm early but it will give you lot time to plan!

    Save 1 variety of chilli with 4-6 seeds per pack. Last year we had to save 5 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.

    Just to be awkward I will do a one way ticket (send them in but noting in return) I am being good for 2017

    I can't actually remember what I have apart from Rocoto Marlene and Aji Pineapple and they are from a supplier I haven't used before so will wait and see how it goes.

    I'm impressed! I don't have your (or any) will-power where seeds are concerned.
