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

Padron chilli starter plant. The Russian roulette of chilli peppers.

In Spain, these chillies are picked when green and fried in olive oil, topped with salt and eaten whole. Though usually mild, occasionally a hot one gets through in a culinary game of Russian roulette. Protect from drafts and keep in a warm spot. Ideal to grow in a green house or window sill. This is one of my favourite varieties and is often what we turn to when cooking a chilli dishes..

Strangely enough about 1 in 8 of the Chillies that you pick from these plants will be hot. The rest will have some heat but not a huge amount.

The plant itself is not the most pretty, it is quite tall and will often drop its lower leaves. But all is forgiven when you taste the fruit. I cook mine by putting a bit of olive oil over them, some salt and either roast them or add them to a hot frying pan. These chillies are also great for the BBQ.
