I love chili peppers and the plants they grow on. There are lots of variety in the 5 main domesticated species and I am trying to grow as many of them as I can. πŸ™‚

I buy most of the from Bunnings (I live in Perth, Western Australia) but you can order mature seedlings from CantstandtheheatΒ or the Western Australia Chilli Seed Exchange (neither links are paid for nor affiliated).

I am going to share what I learn about chili ranching as I go via the links below and please send me your own tips and tricks. I am especially concentrating on how to grow chillis in Perth.
