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

Pellegrino starter chilli plant

Capsicum annuum 'Pellegrino' This surprisingly hot Chilli will produce a huge quantity of very hot fruit. One plant alone is more than capable of having at least 80 Chillies on it during one growing season. This may seem too many for you, but the good news is that the fruit are just as good dried as they are fresh. Starting off green the fruit then turns to a deep red in colour which is when they are best enjoyed. It's quite a hot Chilli and for most people one will be enough added to you favourite dish. When dried they have a lovely deep almost smoky flavour. The plant itself makes a very nice compact bush and looks lovely grown in a pot on the patio or in a corner of a bright room grown as a house plant. Growing to around 60cm in height it’s quite a short Chilli and when it’s filled with shiny red fruit it really is stunning. To sum up This Chilli may not look very hot, but it is and what’s more it has a lovely flavour. It should also not be overlooked as an ornamental plant.

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