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

Mirasol chilli starter plant

Capsicum annuum 'Mirasol' There are 2 main questions we get asked about Chillies. “Whats the hottest Chilli you grow?” and “what's the mildest Chilli you grow?” Well Mirasol is the mildest Chilli we grow. There are many people that will ask what's the point? But don't discount Mirasol. It has a lovely flavour and is particularly suited to roasting or throwing on the BBQ. Where this Chilli really stands out is if you happen to live with someone who doesn't like the heat of Chillies. This is by far the best variety to start their Chilli journey. It’s also mild enough for children. The plant itself is quite tall around about 1m tall with nice big broad leaves. It’s not very compact and can require staking if in a windy spot. Not a particularly productive Chilli plant but you’ll easily pick around 25 fruit in a year. To sum up This is a mild Chilli, it tastes great and is great for roasting. If you like a hot Chilli this is not for you however if you like the flavour of Chillies and not so much heat this is for you.

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