Pot and plant size guide


When you are shopping on line it can be hard to know what size the plants are and what you are getting. This size guide is to help you know what you are getting.


Starter/Plug Plants
Starter plants (often known as plug plants) are cost effective way of buying plants. All of our plants are grwon in a 4.5cm by 5cm plug. This is bigger than most nurseries but we prefer to have a more established plant. The plants are well rooted and ready to be planted up either into a pot or (if the time of year is right) straight into the garden.
6cm Potted Plants
This is the perfect size for chilli and pepper plants in the early part of the year. In the early months of their life chillies can be a bit delicate. That is why we prefer to send them to you in a small pot. It reduces stress on the plant and helps keep the roots both protected and a little warmer.
9cm Potted Plants
9cm pots are the one of the most cost effective ways of buying plants. All of our 9cm plants have been growing for a long enough period of time to make sure you get a well rooted established plant. This size is perfect for planting out (when the weather permist) and means you get a established garden quicker.
1 litre Jumbo Potted Plants
These are big pots. Around 13cm in diameter and around the same depth. This takes a lot of the growing time away from you giving you are far bigger plant. This pot size is often ready from mid to late April onwards.

Plant Description

Big Jim starter chilli plant. Produces huge fruit/pods.

If you’re looking for an everyday Chilli with a mild, sweet flavour then you really can't beat Big Jim. The Chillies were originally loved by chefs for making “Chile Relleno” which is a stuffed pepper. Big Jim these days is better known for holding the world record for the largest fruit. Measuring a huge 33cm long! The big fruit make it a prime candidate for using more as a vegetable for stuffing, roasting or grilling and the mild heat level means they can be enjoyed by people who don't like too much heat. Big Jim is often picked green but can be picked when mature at red. The plant itself is of a reasonable size growing to around 1m in height. As with many of the other large fruiting varieties you won’t be picking hundreds of Chillies off in one growing season but Big Jim is still quite a productive variety. To sum up This is a commercially grown Chilli and with good reason. It tastes great and is very versatile. For anyone who has members of the family who don't like too much heat this is an ideal variety.
