Chilli Plants 2017-06-30T14:40:35+00:00

All our chilli plants are grown in Worcestershire. Some are quite fussy and most prefer to be under cover or indoors – the more heat and warmth the better. When you buy one, I will make sure you know how to care for him or her! Each year’s stock is ready from May onwards… and when they’re gone they’re gone. So to find out what is available and when, please email me.
