Chillies

Postby andrewjxn » Wed Nov 16, 2016 3:18 pm

Hi all,

I recently moved into a new house which has a Chilli plant in the garden. Whilst it is producing chillies it looks very scraggly (refer photo below) and I'm wondering if I should be trimming it back a little to promote new growth?

Any advise would be appreciated.

Andrew.

It's in to much shade for a start. You can prune it back and feed it with a good slow release.

Thanks dalelesley, I need to prune the tree above it a little improve the sunlight situation and will get into it with the secateurs as well.
