    Chilies 2022

    You may end up with short bushy plants as opposed to tall lanky ones. I'm sure different varieties have different growth habits to some extent.

    Thanks for your comments. Obviously I will be watching them. Sure you're correct about strength sapping. Leggy cuttings in the past (not tomatos) I've potted up deeper. Thanks again.

    which black and very very sweet grape to grow?

    I think what a lot of people don't realise is that to get good quality eating grapes you need the patience of a saint regarding thinning out.Not a job I have ever mastered, it's just too fiddly.
