Having had a good crop of chillies from various plants this summer, I'm now pruning them hard back, bringing them indoors & putting on window ledges to over-winter them. This worked well last year. I scraped off most of the compost from around the roots, mixed in a few fertiliser pellets with some new compost & found they cropped again in January/February, despite the lower light levels. They then went on to crop again in summer, using the same technique of replacing part of the compost. For growers of chillies it's worth trying rather than growing new plants every year.
