in General Information

Hello fellow Chilliheads/Growers

I’ve been just as busy in March to the point I don’t know where that month went !!

TDCM-Seedlings-March-2015

The plants are absolutely flying now and I’m now starting to think about potting on, I now have about 400 chilli plants in a lean-to which are under a grow light, this is the first time I’ve used such a method outside before but it does seem to make a difference in helping with the low light levels this time of year, I’m maintaining a minimum temperature of 10°C with the help of an LPG heater that I bought for the princely sum of £1.00 at a farm auction, this is set to come on if the temp falls lower than 10°C.

TDCM-HMP-Channingswood-March-2015

I’m absolutely thrilled to announce that I have the amazing opportunity to use eight polytunnels which are going to be used in a unique project as they are in the grounds of HMP Channingswood. I have Collaborated with Autopot.co.uk on this and without their help & generosity this new venture would not have been possible, so a big thank you to all at Autopot for having confidence in me.

I plan to have around 1500 Chilli plants in the eight polytunnels and around 600 in my glasshouse of which are all in the process of being prepped. Here are a few pictures of where I’m at.

Hi Cliff

I must say these are looking absolutely fantastic as always, I take great pleasure in been one of your loyal customers again this year and can’t wait for the pods to ripen, keep up the good work old bean as this year the dream comes to life.

Eight poly tunnels for yourself along with the glass green house is no easy task for anyone, but I’m sure without any doubt one shall pull it off as always.

Respect Master Yoda!

Daddy Cool 😉
