I have 4 plants overwintering , all still very dorment but alive. Dont really want them getting new growth yet as its too early and they need the sun to produce pods

Good luck with your sowing, MA.

Not nearly enough light here to sow seeds yet, plus we were at -5C this morning with -15C threatened for the weekend. I'll be starting mine off mid-February and hoping for an extended growing season. Some hope! :)

Last year was a poor summer but very mild November and December, prolonging the season.
I start mine indoors under lights, nothing fancy, just simple t5 tubes 24w 6500K. Very cheap set up.
3 have popped up this afternoon  :)

My 5 Apache plants are still going & look pretty good.  Gave one away to an old dear who expressed interest.  Just put 10x Super Chilli seeds in - fingers crossed they all come out ok

Should do mate, annums normally do ok. Heat around 45,000 SHU

These are looking good



A cross of 2 extreme heat chillies, should be around 1.5 million SHU
