Make your chillies go with a bang! A precise formulation for optimal performance of chillies in pots, growbags or open ground. 5ml per litre for young plants; 10ml per litre for flowering plants.
Mix up the Chilli Focus at the rates recommended on the label. Plants can be fed from the seedling stage onwards.
The recommendation is to feed weekly but this can be increased as needed. As long as foliage is dark green then feeding is adequate but if it becomes pale then feeding can be increased. Increase frequency of feeding rather than feed strength. Plants can be fed up to three or four times per week without problems.
Chillies and peppers have specific nutritional requirements and, although it is true that they can perform reasonably well with general purpose “feeds”, the best results will be achieved by using a formulation designed specifically for them.
Chilli Focus is based on commercial chilli nutrients, as manufactured by our company for over twenty years. Originally our formulations were based on academic work, but have been fine-tuned over the years by the experience of our commercial customers.
Chilli Focus is manufactured from the purest and most soluble mineral salts. It is fortified and enhanced with a complex profile of organic plant acids. It is precisely formulated for the needs of chillies and peppers – contains no urea.
Chilli Focus is an ideal feeding programme for chillies. It can help produce healthier more vigorous plants and colourful, juicier fruits.

How To Get The Most From Propogators
For most gardeners creating new plants is a truly rewarding experience. But for some of us, the concept of propagating plants seems like a task that only the most experienced gardeners can undertake.
In her helpful book – “The Plant Propagator’s Bible” – Miranda Smith removes some of the mystery and makes multiplying plants seem really easy – even for the novice. The book draws upon her many years experience as a horticulture teacher, and she simply and clearly explains the process and conditions in which plants grow and reproduce, and shows us how to use these systems to propagate any plant that grows.
It is so simple and can be done in the garden or greenhouse – or even on your windowsill.
There is a helpful “What Can Go Wrong” advice section for each type of plant, explaining potential pitfalls with suggestions on how to prevent or fix them.
It features detailed, step-by-step illustrations and annotated photographs. Including information on essential tools and equipment, this is an invaluable addition to every gardener’s bookshelf.
When you grow your own chillies, you want to give your seeds the best possible start in life – we always use a propagator to help start of ours seeds germinate. It is the perfect way to give your seeds a head start and propergators can help make up for the poor Summers and occasional lack of decent sunlight we can have here in the UK.
Our plants always grow stronger and better as a result of starting them with a propagator.
We have selected the following items from various UK retailers – here we have selected cheaper non electric systems to help you get the best results.
