HI David - how are you doing? This is a great question that i am curious about.
Let's see what the experts say...
Maureen it looks like it will be ok and I am doing fine thanks. I have just completed a big job all down the left side of my garden and just finished the final touches today.
You will see in the photo I have created an area where I have sunk these pots [20 inches deep pots] into the ground then filled the area with sand and covered with pink stones. At the back are 2 Hot Pepper cuttings and the mother at the front, I have 3 more HP cuttings to go in and then that area will be known as the Hot Pepper Corn er haha.
