Tin foil is the worst reflector, it absorbs more than it reflects.
Better off with matt white paint or fork out for some Mylar.

Yup, don’t ever use tinfoil, emergency blankets on eBay are perfect and very cheap

I got some jalapeño, chocolate habanero, slim Jim’s, and scotch bonnets all growing from seed. Also some Padrons for the Spanish themed dinners.

I couldn’t find the naga and ghost seeds locally but will look for plugs in the local garden centres.

I’m hoping this season is better than last on the allotment as the drought last year meant nothing did very well.

It’s that time of the year when I start to think about starting off some chillis from seed. I have an 11x6 foot bed going spare at the allotment so went looking for a few of the less common seeds to pack it out with. Logged onto the Dorset Chilli website and saw that everyone else must have had the same idea...whole range sold out. I felt like Old mother Hubbard!

Back to the garden centre then for the usual suspects

Thanks for the link, I haven’t been very active so apologies for the delay. I will save the link for later in the year.

Well blow me down, I’ve ended up with 12 seedlings from 12 seeds! Either I’m better at this than I thought, or I got lucky with some easy to germinate seeds....

They’re all still pretty tiny and I haven’t sprung for any grow lamps, so I guess they will take their sweet time to grow. Some now have 4 leaves, others two.

Quite exciting really, I haven’t grown anything in years.
