My chillie plant has lot of flowers but no chillies for the last 2 years, next to this plant there is Jasmine and Rose plants and they flower very well, I planted another chillie plant next to it, now both have the same problem. Please advice.

Answer: Hi Suresh, chillies need bees and insects to pollinate the flowers. If they are not around in your garden you will need to pollinate by hand with a small paintbrush. Going from flower to flower, gently rub inside the flower to collect and transfer the pollen grains.
