Re: [CH] How far north ?

I actually get a bit further south.  Hobart in Tasmania (in the land of Oz)
is at 42 deg 87' south.

This leaves me with a reasonably short growing season.  This year I've
experimented with hydroponics under glass (actually polythene tunnel) but
don't use any lights.  Seems to be pretty successful so far, although the
fruit is still to ripen so I can't comment on the heat value of them.

Anyone else out there using hydroponics to grow their chiles, and if so,
any tricks/hints to pass on?

Cheers to all
