Southern Hemisphere Growdown Throwdown - VOTE!

Yesterday, 02:06 AM

Here's the Poll for the variety to be grown in the 2017 Southern Hemisphere Growdown Throwdown.
Voting will close on Sunday 28th May, in one weeks time.

Start date we are aiming for is the Winter Solstice, 21st June. No seeds germinated before this date will be eligible for entry.
The competition shall run for one full year, ending on the 2018 Winter Solstice.

There is also a poll to determine whether the competition shall be height of plant or weight of pods produced by plant.

A Few Simple Rules:
Only one plant may be entered. The plant you are entering must be determined before the Spring Equinox on 23rd September.
No cheating; no head starts, no changing plants, no adding to harvest (if applicable)
You can grow your plant however you want, using whatever methods you choose.
You can start your seeds anytime after the start date.
Photographic/video evidence must be provided of your entries.

We will update this information as necessary.


Good luck, and have fun!

Tastiest Pepper?

This question has probably come up dozens of times before, but I couldn't find anything.

So which chilli brings home the bacon when it comes to taste? In your opinion, anyway.....


Grow down Throwdown for Southern Hemisphere?

15 May 2017 - 11:42 PM


I was wondering if there is usually another grow down throw down for folks who live in the southern latitudes, seeing as the start/finish dates of the usual one don't really suit our seasons...

So is there one?

If there isn't, I reckon we should get one going - we could start it on the solstice and end the same time next year?

Let us know what's up!
Thanks, TBG.

EDIT: Looks like we are going to be organising one! Start date probs Winter solstice, dunno what we'll be growing yet.... Looking for suggestions to put into a poll.

Help with Species?

I was wondering if anyone knows the species of these chillies. I've done a bit of searching, but couldn't find anything solid.

HippySeedCompany Peter Peppers?

08 May 2017 - 03:20 AM

I was looking at buying some Peter Pepper Seeds, and the HIppy Seed Company seems to be the most reliable for people like me in Australia.


But I've noticed that quite a few people have had problems with Peter peppers not having the expected shape (not necessarily from HSC) 


So if anyone has bought peter peppers from the hippy seed company, were they as expected?


Thanks, TBG :woohoo:
