It’s really late to be planting Chilli seeds now but my recent Red Savina failure kept nagging at me so I decided to get some seeds from a different source and try again. This time I’ve planted 15 of them in Root Riot Cubes to see if I have better success with those than with the Jiffy Plugs I was previously using. So far I really like the Root Riot Cubes, they’re just so easy to use. Thanks to this simplicity, next year I’ll plant far more seeds than I expect to need. This way I can either give plants away or just employ the “Survival of the fittest” principle.
My concern with planting seeds this late is that I’m going to produce nice healthy plants and have no summer left for the fruits to develop. I guess I’ll know the answer to that in a few months time.
