As usual my earliest crop and most vigorous plants are Thai Hot Dragon, next best are Nepalese Orange which are absolutely laden with unripe chillis (I mean hundreds of em) Nothing else much to talk of yet.

How we envy you. My plants are only a foot tall .... no sign of chillis yet. Should be along soon I hope.

My Ring of Fire are nearly ready, and the Nepalese Orange have loads of tiny ones on.

I didn't know there was a chilli named ring of fire, that's a hoot, husband is a huge Jonny Cash fan, I shall have to get some seeds for next year.

No it was probably named after the after effects of eating one

Oh dear, Tahir, next season can I send my chillis out to boarding school in Essex?

I was thrilled to note some flower buds on mine (max height 8 inches, most much smaller) yesterday ...I blame the weather, the greenhouse, and possibly the government. They have been in the greenhouse for the best part of the last 6 wks though and apart from being small, look nice and healthy.

I have 2 plants (not sure which sub species). Both have chillis on them. One is covered in aphids, the other not. Only difference I can see is that the one without is near the marigolds that I planted in with the Toms to stop aphid infection. It seems to work.
I was told that yellow marigolds work better than orange ones.....can anyone confirm this.

Mine were put on the windowsill in the lounge when they arrived and somehow never made it to the greenhouse! They must like it in here

My habanero are looking healthy but small so far. All others passed away in the great greenhouse collapse of 2005. Alas. (Bit of roof collapsed during acto of vabdalism. Grrr!)
