You'll do better again this year mate, get those self watering containers made and I'll sort you out some plants again

Burn those spices "Singefry" and Bhunao are the keys to success.

Cheers Chewy, growing superhots is certainly a challenge, but an extremely pleasurable one. The season starts beginning of Jan and goes through till november, so a lot of dedication is required.
Your welcome to some fresh pods later on in the year

Andy welcome back, looking like Admin refused my termination request! Awesome photos of your Chilli Growing Skills, how did you manage aphid control? I had to chemical spray last time a grew a large crop as they took over the glass house. Tried lemon and soap but not much luck.

I never use chemicals lc, I use companion planting . Inside my greenhouse are french marigolds and outside the greenhouse are nettles, the marigolds seem to keep aphids away and the nettles attract the aphids more than the chillies do.
For the young plants that get infected I wash off in water by turning the plant upside down and dunking in the water several times, this is done every 4 days or so until they are clear. Painstaking but effective.
