Sowing chillis

Fancy something to spice up your meals this year? Chilli peppers can be sown now. Sow seed in trays, modules or pots of moist seed compost at 21˚C (70˚F). Lower the temperature slightly once the seeds have germinated. Transfer individual seeds to 3in (8cm) pots when three true leaves have appeared.
