I've been frantically giving away as many plants as I could to reduce the number to relocate so by the time the exodus was upon us I was down to a mere(!) 50 or so plants.
They were duly crated up and loaded into the car for the short hop to pastures new. Likewise, the various chilli houses were disassembled and, with the aid of a trailer, reunited with the plants.
|One of the two Chilligrows L-R; Friar's Hat, Lemon Drop, Superchilli|
|The roots of this Lemon Drop have escaped into the reservoir below|
|In the departure lounge - the first batch ready to be moved.|
|A Trinidad Scorpion with a perfectly formed 'stinger'|
|The mighty Scotch Bonnet plant is doing exceptionally well in the Root-Pouch.|
|Plenty of Habaneros in their temporary greenhouse home|
|These were supposed to be De Arbol seeds but I'm beginning to have my doubts.|
|The pretty (and bountiful) Black Pearl|
|Etna is laden with small glossy pods waiting to ripen|
|The Chilligrows in their new home L to R: Paper Lantern, 2 x Scorpion, Lemon Drop, Superchilli & Friar's Hat|
|Plenty of hot fruit forming on the Paper Lantern Habanero|
|Joe's Long Chilli|
Both plants now have plenty of flowers and the Orange Hab also has fruit forming. The plants seem very healthy with plenty of foliage. I'll probably have to provide them with some support before too long as the clay pellets don't support the stems and roots as well as the much denser soil does.
|L to R: Peach Habanero, Orange Magnum Habanero|
