I'm not a big fan of chili, as a bit too hot for me although these are what you'd call 'Mild'. I do grow some peppers with little or no heat though.

The secret to growing healthy plants is the mix, which is Mushroom Compost blended with a shovelful of potting mix, some Coir, 1 cup Dolomite Lime and some Sudden Impact - but don't tell anyone O.K.. :roll:

I'd be inclined to wait until the plant has got through the winter and then just give it a drink mixing 1 Tbsp Dolomite in a watering can of water. Fertilise then too.

It looks nice and healthy. They are attractive in the garden even if they are not used.

Well you certainly can grow pretty convincing chillies Mcsee. Those tubs are a fantastic idea for a pot - certainly much cheaper than a pot that size. (Y)

Cheap NFL Jerseys China

Postby FrhjwIv2 » Sat Aug 18, 2018 12:39 pm

Although the Browns went 1-15 and slid even deeper into the NFL's abyss, coach Hue Jackson hung on to his job. A revamped analytic-focused front office led by vice president Sashi Brown and strategy director Paul DePodesta went as far on Monday as to claim the team made progress in 2016.
In Cleveland,Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys, that qualifies as change.
CLEVELAND (AP) — The worst season in Browns' history,Cheap Jerseys For Sale, sometimes laughable, often painful,Brian Poole Falcons Jersey, and totally deplorable,nhl jerseys outlet, ended without any significant changes.
Owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam,Cheap Arizona Cardinals Jerseys, whose four-years-plus tenure has been overloaded with losing and turnover,Cheap NFL Jerseys, vowed to keep things intact at the beginning of the season. They kept their word as Sunday's finale in Pittsburgh was followed by calm and commitment.
