I find it exciting waiting for your seeds to show, also quite addictive sowing seeds

now 7. 

Seen an interesting youtube video where the guy puts his seeds between moist kitchen roll folded over placed in a poly bag then into warm area like an airing cupboard.  Checks show visually when the seed is sprouting - then pots into growing compost etc.  Takes about 2 weeks he reckoned this way - but takes the guesswork out of  'will they sprout / when or not?'

I've just splashed out for a electric seed propagator. I didn't have any choice, as I told the missus.

I sow mine into a take away container with a few holes in the lid, about an inch of soil then a fine layer soil on top of seeds. Put the takeaway container into heated prop.
Once the seeds pop they need light otherwise they become too leggy. Once they get the first set of true leaves I transfer to 7cm pots.

This will be my 4th attempt at growing chilli's and my last if i fail again,they always seem to be going well but then shrivel up just before ripening,i cant work out were i seem to be going wrong,i follow the instructions and advise i get from experienced growers to the letter.
