Growing chiles whether you like the burn of bird peppers or a slight sizzle of the poblanos, hot peppers make delicious additions to gardens. We grow our own plants from seeds, beginning indoors, eight weeks before the last frost. Seeds should germinate in seven to fifteen days. Transplant into garden when nighttime temperatures are consistently above fifty-five degrees and in full sun.
Avoid over- watering by spreading mulch over roots.
A low nitrogen fertilizer should be applied every three weeks.
Start planting and this summer enjoy some food with firepower.
