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

Chilli Christmas starter plant. A good choice for a windowsill chilli pepper.

A huge amount of people (you may be one of them) are looking to grow a Chilli plant on a windowsill. There’s no doubt that Chillies work really well for this.  You will get fresh Chillies waiting to be added to your cooking. The only issue you can get is that some Chilli plants can get very tall. This is where Christmas really comes into its own. Traditionally an ornamental variety which is very short producing fruit pointing upwards. This Chilli is almost the shortest we grow. It’ll grow to around 20cm in height and spread about the same still giving you enough space on your windowsill to let some light in! The Chillies themselves are around 2-5cm long and start off an interesting white and purple ripening to a lovely deep red. Heat wise they’re around the same level as a Jalapeno. This Chilli also makes a nice houseplant as long as you have a light enough room it will happily grow and fruit away for much of the year. To sum up A lovely little plant that works very well on a windowsill. Ideal if you want an easy houseplant.
