  • Full Sun

  • Medium

Try to plant in a location that enjoys full sun and remember to water moderately. Keep in mind when planting that Hot Stuff is thought of as half hardy, so it will need protecting in periods of cold weather. Ideally plant in loamy and sandy soil and try to keep the ph of your soil between the range of 7.0 and 8.5 as Hot Stuff likes to be in neutral soil to weakly alkaline soil.

Growing Hot Stuff from seed

Aim to sow 0.2 inches (0.5 cm) deep and try to ensure a gap of at least 1.95 inches (5.0 cm). Soil temperature should be kept higher than 18°C / 64°F to ensure good germination.

By our calculations, you should look at sowing Hot Stuff about 38 days before your last frost date.

Transplanting Hot Stuff

Ensure that temperatures are mild and all chance of frost has passed before planting out, as Hot Stuff is a half hardy plant.
