Was the pepper tree easy to grow being tempted for a few yrs to try some.


There a local nursery that has does  exotic fruit trees had  a whole selection of pepper trees:




Also fancied pecan nuts


Yes, mine has been dead easy to grow. I just plonked it in the ground and it's just roared off, no special attention at all. It's about 7 years old now and probably 12 foot high and 12 ft spread.

I don't know which particular type it is. I had no idea there were so many Szchuan Pepper trees until I looked at that link. All I know is that it has bloody great thorns and it fruits profusely.

I'm considering some winter cabbages this year, mainly due to the fact that nothing much will eat them, hopefully. The net completely protected them from birds and butterflies this summer, but they were still ravaged by slugs, (and what looked like the wriggly tiger worms that live in compost heaps, which was very surprising).
