New In!

The Oxfordshire Chilli Garden

The Oxfordshire Chilli Garden is run through a two-centre operation in Eynsham. After tracing back their origins to expat days in Singapore and growing a few chilli plants on the balcony, they decided to have a go at growing them in the UK. Despite the temperamental British weather, their first African Bird's Eye plant thrived and produced hundreds of chillies. They then started to experiment with other varieties, taking the seeds from one of the pods and growing even more plants. 

All of the chilli plants start off in Eynsham, where they sow the seeds in propagators indoors at the beginning of the growing season (usually between January and March). After this, they are then potted up and moved into small heated greenhouses where they are able to take advantage of the longer, brighter days. In May, the young plants are then transported into bigger pots and are taken to the much bigger greenhouse in Witney where the plants can continue to grow upwards and outwards. The ripe chillies are then brought back to Eynsham where they are dried, packaged and dispatched. 

Although the chillies aren't organic, they are grown whilst keeping a very close eye on the environment. All of the plants are grown in pots in compost containing a minimal amount of peat and whenever possible we water them with rainwater collected in troughs and are fed with organic liquid feed. Bees and hoverflies help to pollinate the plants in summer and they rely on biological pest control (ladybirds and lacewings).
