   No serious question is ever out of place. Depending on where you live
'down under' and just how cold your winters are you might try cover them
with removable plastic tents. It works in Florida, USA but here we
rarely have real cold. This winter not even a light frost on my garden.
If you live where it gets serious cold you might transplant to pots and
move the pplants indoors. In general my pepppers survive as long as I
keep them from freezing. I have managed to start a couple from cuttings
when nematodes begin to cause serious problems.

Best of growing,
