Grow bumper chilli harvests with this ultimate chilli growers kit. This great kit contains everything you need to grow healthy plants laden with ripe fruit. The 60 seeds will be given a head start in the propagator and the Chilligrow planter will keep your plants perfectly fed and watered at all times.Included in the kit is your very own pocket sized Chilli Grow Guide that will help you on your way to growing bumper harvests of chillies!
Soak the Jiffy Pellets in water for 5 minutes, then place into the propagator. The lid traps warm air, creating the moist atmosphere that seeds need for germination and protects seedlings from draughts and drying out. When the roots have grown through the wall of the Jiffy Pellet your plant is ready to be potted-on as you would if you had sown your seeds in soil.
Chilligrow 3 Pot Chilli Planter
Simply fill the Chilligrow's SmartReservoir and let the FeederMats in the pots pull water up to the roots when they need it. Although your chilli plants have access to water whenever they need it, their roots are never stood in water, so access to oxygen is never limited.
Each pot is 6litres, large enough for healthy root growth but small enough to encourage early fruit development, giving fruit time to ripen and giving the plant time to produce bigger chilli harvests.
Designed by chilli experts, the Chilligrow keeps your chillies perfectly fed and watered at all times without ever overwatering, producing bigger harvests. The Chilligrow produces such healthy harvests that ChilliFoundry describe it as producing "the best most consistent results"

The Chilligrow was specifically designed to produce bumper chilli harvests. It produces healthier plants and bigger harvests by providing your plants with constant access to water without ever over-watering.
Chillies, like all plants, need to constantly replace the water they use, but overwatering prevents roots from accessing oxygen and is the number one cause of plant demise. Incorrect watering causes most gardening problems, including blossom end rot and fruit splitting.
What happens when we overwater?
If the soil is over-watered the pores in the soil become blocked and the roots can't access the air. This lack of oxygen means the roots suffocate and die, which then means that the roots can’t take up water or nutrients. A plant weakened by overwatering becomes susceptible to disease, particularly fungal attacks.
What happens when we underwater?
If we undewater the plant can not carry out the following functions effectively and the plant becomes weak, suspectible to disease, unproductive and will eventually die.
Transporting minerals and nutrients
Plants use water to move minerals and nutrients from the roots around the plant, and to move glucose (from photosynthesis) from leaves to other cells in the plant. Photosynthesis About 5% of the water absorbed by plants is used to make glucose during the photosynthesis process.
As well as water, plants need carbon dioxide for photosynthesis (they combine water, carbon dioxide and light to produce glucose). They access this carbon dioxide through microscopic openings on their leaves and stems. These openings are called ‘stomata’. The stomata open and close regularly to absorb carbon dioxide and as they do this they also release water, this release of water is called transpiration. If the plant is short of water it won't open its stomato as frequently and therefore it won't photosynthesise as much. Sunny, hot weather increases the rate of transpiration, which is why plants need more water in these conditions.
It's not science, but here's a bit about our love of chillies
Chillies are quite simply our favourite crop. We’ve been growing them in our visitor greenhouse for 10years, but John, our chairman, has been growing them for himself for 40years. We are proud that our Grow planters and Vitopod propagators are used by such fabulous chilli growers as Chillies Galore, Upton Cheyney Chilli, Simpsons Seeds, Wiltshire Chilli Farm, Chilli Seeds, South Devon Chilli Farm and the Chilli Queen.
Chillies are the star attraction at our greenhouse in Lancashire, where we grow between 9 and 15 varieties each year including our five year old Trinidad Scorpion. This year we are growing Rocotto Red, Big Jim, Joes Long, Lemon Drop, Trinidad Scorpion, Friars Hat, Ring of Fire, Prairie Fire, Padron and Ebony amongst others. All of our planters are designed with chillies in mind, from the Chilligrow designed in close consultation with several of the chilli growers name checked above; right up to the Hydrogrow planters that produce plants that grow up to 7ft tall, each producing several hundred chillies.
Chillies were the inspiration behind the Vitopod propagator’s temperature range; it can be set as high as 30°C to get really hot chillies off to a head start, and it can be set as low as 5°C to overwinter in an unheated polytunnel without subjecting prized chillies to frost. We can’t take all the credit though, ideas for our products are inspired by the great people we meet at the chilli events we attend each year including the West Dean Chilli Fiesta.
Because we are such huge chilli fans some of us are active on the chilli forums, we’re there in our spare time for fun, but we are honest about working for Greenhouse Sensation, so if you spot us feel free to ask any Greenhouse Sensation related questions.
