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

Cayenne 9cm potted chilli plant. A must have chilli plant.

This almost mythical Chilli is often shrouded with mystery.  It’s not that many years ago that this Chilli was one of the hottest we grew. Things have moved on a bit in the Chilli world but make no mistake this is still a hot Chilli and to many people it’s more than hot enough. The name Cayenne comes from a river in French Guiana but there’s very little known as to why it’s named that as the variety isn’t grown in South America. The fruit is bigger than most people assume growing anything up to 25cm in length with a nice thick flesh. It has a lovely flavour with a slightly smoky taste. The plant itself is quite large growing to atleast 3ft and often 4ft high. As well as being 2 foot wide making it quite a large specimen. But when the size of the fruit tells you why. Cayenne will often have over 20 fruit at any one time considering the size of the fruit this is very impressive. Over the space of a season you could easily pick over 60 fruit from one plant. To sum up Looking for a large hot Chilli with a nice flavour? Cayenne is a good choice. However this is a large plant so isn’t suitable for anywhere space is limited.

Some info about this plant and some of the conditions it's happy to grow in.
