Well, they are growing... Just like everything else, they are not particularly happy to have been kept indoors so much. Despite my best efforts, my plants just do not get enough light when kept on a windowsill. Nevertheless they are looking reasonably good, and the first flowers are now appearing.
In this tray I have arranged the plants in pairs. The two at the left are "Fuego F1"; the two centre ones are "Hot Portugal" and the two at the right are "Amando". What a big difference in size there is.
And these even smaller ones are the two best of my so-called "Turkey" chillis.
That's more like it! The green pots are 12 inches in diameter.
When I show you how densely matted the rootball of one of these plants is, I think you will understand why they need to be potted on:
I have put the re-potted chillis in the plastic Seedling Greenhouse, because I am worried by the prospect of cold night-time temperatures still. The two "Turkey" plants are in the smaller terracotta coloured pots at the front. They will have to be re-potted again when they get bigger (and when some bigger pots are released for use - maybe when the daffodil bulbs have completely withered...?)
The potato plants that were formerly in the Seedling Greenhouse have been evicted and now live along the back of the gas barbecue. They are big enough to fend for themselves now, (unless we get any more frost...).
P.S. We have had really cold night-time temperatures the last two nights. Overnight Tuesday/Wednesday we had zero degrees. I had to scrape ice off my car windscreen on Wednesday morning - in the middle of May! Fortunately I had taken precautions - e.g. I had brought my Tomato plants indoors, and covered some other things with fleece - so hopefully no real harm has been done.
