Chilli success

Such is my chilli success that I’ve potted them on and have moved them into my main Access Frame that holds the same amount of plants as a 6’ x 4’ greenhouse.

On frosty nights I have lit my 10 hour tea lights and sat them on a terracotta saucer with a terracotta pot over to make a ‘warm igloo’ which just keeps the frame frost free.

It has worked well and saves money.

The marigolds were less successful.  They did germinate but got very leggy.  My daughter Amelia wanted to help me to a bit in the garden, so she has planted them upto the 2 leaves that form first straight into the compost in the raised bed with a value frame on top.  They seem quite happy in there.  She also planted the spring onions in there that were equally leggy.

NOTE TO SELF.  Some things will grow without extra heat I think!

All enthused and wanting to grow some more…..
