I love that Mr. Ed is working hard, with Facebook in the background!

My dad reckons that if you want hot chillis you need a lot of sun on them but if you want big chillis you need to give them a LOT of water to help them get fatter.

My chilli plants like a bit of Baby Bio. It seems to make them grow up big and strong.

And also, if you pickle the chillis once they are grown it makes them hotter!

I have grown many chillis big and strong, and although there are lots of ways to do it (it seems most serious growers grow them in running water) I have found the optimum conditions are in the bathroom with the radiator on - really hot and humid. Don't let them dry out, as Jo said, because when they are well-watered they grow big chillis.

Singing and talaking to them is very good for them, the vibrations and carbon dioxide in your breath help them grow! Also stroking their stems for at least a minute every day helps prevent disease resistance, for some reason.

Best of luck, with the best of plants! Might be good to see some chilli in your smoothies...

Great competition idea Innocent :)

Tell Anthony to use vaseline before he runs, will stop the chafing. If its really sore put it on before he goes to bed as well.

i actually love this idea!!! wish the people where i worked did this sort of thing.

OK, I'm coming to work for you guys as... ahem... Head Gardener! I'm green fingered! I started my own veg patch when I was only a nipper of 14 and grew carrots, beans, gourds, courgettes and three very anaemic potatoes.
If I can bring my Yucca (called Andronicus) and a tent, I'll live in the office!

Well done Anthony on running for the National Autistic Society. It's a great charity, my son Tom is autistic and they are a great source of help and info.
Tom also approves of your cartons because they have a happy face on them and no lumpy bits in the smoothie.

Surely the real measure of a chilli isn't their heat as you eat them, rather the damage they do on the way out.......
