Chilli growing kit for growing three plants of Kilian cayenne chillies

Kilian is standard cayenne-type chilli perfect for Indian cooking. The thin, pointed fruit are about 80mm long and and only 9mm wide. They start green and ripen to a beautiful, eye-catching orange. At the ripe stage the fruit are a high medium heat, making then usable for almost anyone in the kitchen.

The plants are bushy, reaching a height of about 60cm, and are perfectly manageable in medium to large pots. The plants are very productive, and as the bright orange fruit cascade downwards the mature plants look extremely attractive.


Each kit contains the seed and equipement for growing three chilli plants:
- A pack of chilli seeds (15 seeds)
- Seed tray
- High dome lid for the seed tray
- Seeding compost for the seed tray
- Bottle top waterer for watering the seedlings
- Three 1 litre pots
- Labels for the pots
- Detailed instructions for growing your chilli plants

*The only thing that you will have to buy is a small bag of multipurpose compost for potting on.

Chillies are difficult to germinate so the kit provides 15 seeds to be sure you get at least three seedlings for potting on. The kit supplies three pots for potting on three individual seedlings. If you have good germination and more than three seedlings develop, the extra seedlings can be potted on if you buy more pots.
