Have 4 chilli plants called cheyenne. They are about 4" high. Should i pinch the growing tip out to encourage them to bush out or leave them to their own devices? Have grown them before but am unable to remember. Think age is catching up.



Hi Rohima!
I just let chili peppers pinch themselves as they bloom: it makes for a stronger bush, and earlier bearing.
