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.
