    Default The Chilli & Pepper Seed Circle 2019

    It's that time again folks!

    Save 1 variety of chilli with 4-6 seeds per pack.

    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.

    Yes, sweet peppers are more than welcome!

    Off the top of my head, I think Snack bites may be F1.... But any sweet pepper thats not an F1 would be fabulous.

    I'm afraid I'll be using the same excuse as on the tomato seed circle
