James’ Greenhouse Diary – July Update

Bhut Jolokia

Bhut Jolokia

I thought this week i would start off talking about the chilli plants as I haven’t mentioned them in a while, unfortunately most of the seed grown chillis – Bhut Jolokia, Naga Morich and Habeneros have not really developed much, where as the rest seem to be doing really well and starting to flower, so there will still be a big selection for us to try.

My carrots also have come along really nicely having been able to crop them I can now see some big differences between the two different types, the sure start carrots have developed much faster producing much bigger carrots, where as the normal seeds which have also come along well are not as big or developed as the sure start ones.

I noticed this week that some of my tomatoes as they start ripening they were splitting, this is due to inconsistant watering as it is getting very hot in there I need to keep a better eye on them, they are however producing a lot of fruit.

My cape gooseberrys are also doing well still had no fruit but there are plenty forming. The asparagus peas however haven’t done very well – but are still growing.
