Taste of Italy Seeds - Chilli Pepper Peperone Fuego F1

Chilli Pepper Peperone Fuego is a hot Cayenne pepper which produces tapering, 15cm long fruits that turn from green to fiery red as they ripen. With a compact, upright habit and short internodes, Chilli Pepper Peperone Fuego is ideal for growing in growbags or containers on the patio. This particular variety produces abundant crops if picked regularly throughout the summer.

Flowering period: Jun-Sep
Sowing months: Jan-Apr
Position: Full sun
Height: 50cm
Spread: 40cm

Sow Chilli Pepper seeds on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed sowing mix and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place seed trays in a propagator at a temperature of 18-25C until after germination, which takes 7-10 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination.

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into individual 7.5cm pots of compost and grow on in cooler conditions. When plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, transplant them into grow bags and containers, or plant them in well prepared beds of fertile, moist, well drained soil. Chilli peppers may be grown undercover in a greenhouse or polytunnel, or grown outdoors in a sheltered position in full sun. When growing chilli peppers outdoors, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to transplanting them. Space pepper plants at a distance of 50cm apart.

Water chilli pepper plants regularly throughout the growing season and feed weekly with a high potash tomato fertiliser once the first fruits have set. Taller varieties of chilli peppers may require staking. Provide a thick mulch of organic matter around the base of the plants to help conserve moisture and reduce weed growth. In greenhouses, maintain high humidity by damping down paths daily. Harvest chillies singly by cutting them from the plant with secateurs or pull the entire plant when full of red peppers, and hang upside down in the kitchen for use all year round. Chilli peppers grown outdoors must be harvested before the first frosts.

Vegetable Seeds - Brussels Sprout Bright F1

This 2-in-1, Brussels Sprout Bright is an autumn-maturing variety that produces a well spaced crop of sprouts with the added bonus of the sweet, cabbage-like top which can be eaten as delicious fresh ‘greens’. The tasty round buttons are of uniform size with a realy good flavour and are suitable for freezing. Brussels Sprout Bright also shows good resistance to stem mildew, leaf spot and alternaria.

Sowing months: Mar-Apr
Position: Full sun
Height: 75cm
Spread: 50cm

Sow Brussels Sprout seed indoors from February. Alternatively direct sow outdoors from March into a well prepared seedbed, for transplanting to their final positions later on. Sow at a depth of 13mm and distance of 30cm between rows. Indoors, sow seed in 7.5cm pots or trays of free-draining, seed sowing compost and cover with a 6mm layer of vermiculite. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a plastic bag at a temperature of 15C until germination which takes around 7 days. Once germinated, grow Brussels Sprouts on in cooler conditions until all risk of frost has passed and plants are large enough to be transplanted.

Gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before planting Brussels Sprout plants outdoors in firm, rich fertile, well drained soil in full sun. Prepare the soil in advance in early spring by adding plenty of well rotted farmyard manure to the soil to improve its structure and fertility. Plant brassicas at a distance of 60cm apart and cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects. Water the plants thoroughly after planting.

Water Brussels sprouts regularly and do not allow them to dry out as this may impair their development. Hoe between plants regularly to prevent weeds from establishing and bring insect larvae to the surface. Remove any yellowed or diseased leaves as they occur. Brussels Sprouts can be harvested from October to December but their flavour will be improved if they are left exposed to the first frosts.

Vegetable Seeds - Carrot Eskimo

As the name suggests, Carrot Eskimo is one of the most cold tolerant varieties available, coping with winter weather down to -10C when grown on lighter soils. The rich orange, cylindrical roots can be lifted late in the season or even over wintered in free draining conditions. This top quality, RHS AGM variety resists splitting and retains its flavour throughout the autumn and winter - especially if left in the ground.

  • RHS Award of Garden Merit

    Sowing months: Apr-Jul
    Position: Full sun
    Height: 30cm
    Spread: 15cm

    Direct sow carrot seeds outdoors from March to July. Early varieties may also be sown from February to March in greenhouse borders or under cloches. Specific autumn sowing carrot varieties can be sown as late as October under cloches for an early crop in spring. Grow Carrots in a weed free, sunny position in fertile, light, well drained soil. Carrots dislike freshly manured soils so seed beds are best prepared in autumn, well in advance of spring sowings. Sow carrot seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm in drills 30cm apart. Germination will take 10 to 20 days. When large enough to handle, thin out the seedlings within each row to 10cm apart. Where space is limited, growing carrots in containers will also produce a worthwhile crop.

    Water well to encourage germination. Once germinated, carrots should be watered only when necessary to keep the soil moist as excessive water may encourage leaf growth instead of roots. During growth, the carrot roots may be earthed up to prevent green crowns developing. Cover later carrot sowings with fleece or fine netting, and remove all thinnings from the site to minimise carrot fly infestation. Carrots can be harvested from July to December depending on their sowing date. Early varieties may be lifted when required from 9 weeks onwards, while maincrops can be harvested after 11 weeks from their sowing date. Pull a single carrot first to assess the size of the roots. If the soil is dry, lifting carrots can be made easier by watering beforehand. Roots can be stored in a cool, dry place for up to 4 months.
