Welcome to the first incarnation of the Chilli Up North Website. It's been a long time coming and it's still not finished and a little rough around the edges, but i think i am getting there so please bare with me.
The website will eventually provide a comprehensive guide to growing chillis (or chilles or chilis depending where you are from). I hope that it will be an enjoyable and easy read and that my passion for all things chilli will come across, i also want to stress how cheap and easy it is to grow your own.
I started growing chillis back in 1999 when i was bought a jalapeno plant as a present by some relatives, it lived on my window sill until i could persuade my parents they needed a greenhouse and it's kind of gone a bit bonkers since and only got worse when we bought our own house as it had a big greenhouse and space for a vegetable patch
I now have 100's of different types of chilli seed ranging from standard red and green chillis through to orange chillis, yellow chillis, purple chillis and chillis in all shapes and sizes, which may seem like a lot but it's only a small percentage of the 1000's that are available.
Anyway enough about me, enjoy the site and if you have any questions or comments then please get in touch.
