How to Protect your Chilli Plants

If you are placing your chilli plants outside to grow it is worth placing them in a sunny sheltered spot to get the warmth the need and also importantly avoid being blown about by the wind to much or drowned by the endless British rain. If you don't have access to or space for a greenhouse I have found a cold frame very useful to protect my plants while they are still growing. These can be picked up very cheaply and don't take up too much space. 

If you would like extra protection then I can also highly recommend a guard cat to watch over your plants


  1. Is that cat yours? It looks very handsome, but somehow threatening too. The "Bouncer" watching out to ensure that your chillis behave themselves!

  2. Yep he is called neo and is acctually one of two. Our other cat maddie has been know to eat my baby Chili plants in the past :)
