Ornamental as well as edible
Chilli Pepper ‘Fiery Flames’ is a compact plant especially good for window-sill growing but equally useful in the conservatory or greenhouse. Both edible and ornamental, it bears numerous, 3cm long red chillies which are rated 100,000 on the Scoville scale making this an extremely hot chilli. Height: 30cm (12”). Spread: 30cm (12”).
Height Up to 30cm (12in)
Spread Up to 30cm (12in)
1 x 12cm Peat-Free Potted Plant (KB9697)
This 12cm plant is ideal for window sill growing but can also be grown in a greenhouse, polytunnel, or grown outdoors in a sheltered position in full sun.
For windowsill growing - it will crop reliably if kept in its original pot and fed and watered regularly but potting up will increase your crop. Feed and water pepper plants regularly throughout the growing season to prevent the flower buds from dropping. To ensure pollination tickle each flower with a soft paintbrush.
When growing chilli peppers outdoors, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to transplanting them into a sunny, sheltered position in well drained soil. Space pepper plants at a distance of 50cm (20") apart.
Outdoors, provide a thick mulch of organic matter around the base of the plants to help conserve moisture and reduce weed growth. In greenhouses, maintain high humidity by damping down paths daily.
Harvest peppers singly by cutting them from the plant by with secateurs or pull the entire plant when full of red peppers, and hang upside down in the kitchen for use all year long. Peppers grown outdoors must be harvested before the first frosts.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
