Discs can be cut to pot size if required. • Cover with a little more compost and water lightly. • Store in a warm location at an approx. temperature of 18 to 21C (65 to 70F) • Sit back and wait for your seeds to grow! • When the seedlings are strong enough to handle, transplant into bigger pots to grow on. • Once all chance of frost has passed the plants can be transplanted in your garden, harden off first. “Hardening off” is the process of moving plants outdoors for a portion of the day to gradually introduce them to the direct sunlight, dry air, and cold nights. • For extra protection cover with cloches. • Chillies do best in very mild conditions, therefore, it would be better to keep them in a green house or indoors.
