About the Author
Jason Nickels has been a chilli enthusiast since they were forced upon him in early childhood. In his younger days he made all the mistakes a novice grower is likely to make. Luckily he learned from these mistakes and extensive travel to South America in his 20s only served to enhance his knowledge and experience of chillies. His hobby grew and in 2003 he was a founder of South Devon Chilli Farm, a commercial chilli grower and supplier of seeds and chilli plants to domestic growers in the U.K. He has made numerous TV appearances, written magazine features and delivered talks on chilli growing to enthusiastic audiences. His experience and knowledge of the challenges faced by novice and domestic chilli growers is unparalleled. Jason has now retired from commercial farming but still explores chilli growing on a domestic scale whist writing on the subject.

Great product which will help what for most of us will be a fun hobby. 100% recommend.
UPDATE: I see that this comment is now displayed as the most helpful critical comment and that the author has replied. I don't want to make an unfair criticism so I will say that I kind of knew that you could chuck chilli plants in any old soil as I have previously grown chilli plants from seeds taken from shop bought chillies easily. I just wanted a little more detail to know the best soils for the various types as I'm now starting to grow 10-20 varieties. No big deal, especially if soil composition isn't that important.
My comment about the US market is based on the fact that my personal interest is in Asian cooking, so I am interested in those types of chillies rather than Habaneros, Jalapenos etc (though I'm growing those as well).
If anyone can answer or provide a link identifying Kashmiri Chillies by their Latin name and/or variety I would be forever grateful. I already know that it is quite possibly a' Cayenne' pepper but the variety I don't know. I also know that one of the main brands of Kashimiri Chilli powders contains Capiscum Annum L and Capiscum Frutescens L. . . . . . .but you can , and I do buy whole dried 'Kashmiri' chillies, seeds of which I have planted and are growing strongly, I just don't know what they are!
I have also bought the 'RHS Red Hot Chilli Grower: The complete guide to planting, picking and preserving chillies' at a somewhat cheaper price on pre-order. I'll update this review again once I receive it for comparison purposes and if the RHS guide doesn't meet my expectations I'll certainly comment.
