I saw plants but more importantly a Bhut Jolokia plant along with a whole bunch of other pepper plants they also had broccoli starters. I was really surprised to see that they had a ghost chili pepper plant it was weird it was 12.99. I was thinking getting one but it wasn't bushy like the pictures on here I have seen it was thin so I didn't want it so I will just wait for the seeds form ottawa. I also had a question not related peppers has anyone here grown carrots in a container?

I'm container growing carrots right now, actually.

And I would be very careful about nursery bhuts. I bought 4 "ghost pepper" plants earlier in the season from a nursery. I ended up with 4 different peppers, none of which was a bhut.

RE: So I was at the nursery when.....

they had pods on them and they look just like the pictures here this nursery is a small but reputable one. what size container do you grow your carrots in and if you don't mind do you have a picture.

RE: So I was at the nursery when.....

I'm just growing them in some fairly small containers (I think a gallon each) as an experiment. I have no idea what they'll do, but the seeds were cheap and I had extra pots/soil.

haha sounds like something I would do

RE: So I was at the nursery when.....

carrots grow great in containers, as long as it has enough depth to grow they will...

you could always do something like paris market, they get a bit bigger than golfballs not much longer super tender too...

Here is a link that might be useful: paris market seed
