Why Gardening at Home and Chili?
Nothing beats gardening at home in your very own vegetable patch. Whether that is in your actual garden or in pots, it couldn’t be easier to grow your very own.
While chillies thrive in warmer climates, they can just as easily grow in colder places also. It is totally up to you on the types of chilli plants you want to grow. You can grow chillies from seeds, get some chilli seedlings or even more mature chilli plants.
