Chillies are hard to grow in victoria so I suggest not trying to propagate them, use seedlings. Good quality SUPER hot chilli seedlings can be purchased at Masters.


  • 1 Plastic pot
  • 1 Bag of potting mix
  • 1 Chilli seedling


  1. Fill the plastic pot with potting mix
  2. Put your seedling in, covering all of the roots
  3. Pour a little more potting mix over the top


Plant seedlings in late spring for best results in Victoria, for the northern states plant early spring

  • I love growing chilli plant, but my chilli plant always die by winter. Is this normal? My friend also grow chili but her plants do not die off.


  • Thankfully have had no problem growing chilli from seeds at our place. Was given one Birds eye chilli from the brother in law when we moved in and not only did that trigger my slight obsession for them (20 varieties later lol) I also am the only one in the family that has plants lasting and providing massive crops for over 7 years- also all seedlings that come up are still true to the parent plant, my brother in law on the other hand has had no such luck and now gets chilli from my crops :)
    Wishing plentiful crops and seasons, thanks for sharing.


  • I live in vic and have a garden full of different types chillis, some from seed. I have been trying the grow a black chilli… from seed without any luck.
