i have a chilli plant grown from seed. it was sown late, and has not provided fruit, i have taken in house for winter, do you think it will continue to grow in spring when it can return to the garden



I think next year I would do it the other way around ie. start it off early in the house and put it out early, and even then it needs somewhere hot. It's a bit chilly for a chilli now.Some plants such as Tomatoes need an early start with protection so that they can fruit while it's still warm.

I don't know if you listen to Gardener's Question Time on Radio 4 but there was an interesting question this afternoon relating to this subject. It's repeated on Sunday afternoon if you're interested.
