I have been getting into growing chillies from seed, and am enjoying it greatly, but was wondering what fertilizers you guys would recommend for 1) young seedlings and 2) flowering, and setting of fruit?

Young plants do not need any fertiliser until they have at least a couple of sets of ‘true’ leaves and are ready to be transplanted. Then, a good fertiliser – such as a tomato fertiliser – which has good ratio of n:p:k and some trace elements – but plenty of potassium for flower / fruit production. Fruit setting is also aided by regular deep watering – but be careful that the plants don’t stay with wet feet as this can affect the taste of the chillies, and can also cause fungal diseases.
