Growing Chilli peppers, also Hot peppers

View the Chilli peppers page

02 Nov 08 Murray (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
After picking up some seeds at the garden show, I have added chilli to my seed trays in order to liven up the dinner plate this summer! Unfortunately, the chilli seeds are not striking. I must be doing things half right, as my lettuce, spinach, etc, are all shooting well. I have noticed my chilli packets are all Italian in variety..... Why wont they strike? What am I doing wrong?
