Start seeds under a grow lights in February, or March, transfer to a row tunnel, in a sunny area, around May, keep soil damp, and cross your fingers.
Amend with N: chicken manure 2.88 oz/sq.ft. P: bone meal .48 oz/sq.ft. K: wood ash 1/4" to 1/2"/sq.ft.

You seem to be in the UK so put them away until spring. Chillies are grown as annuals in temperate climates and need warmth and full sun. Start preparing your garden beds. If you want to grow something now think about cool season veges like brassicas.

Britain, in fact even Jan for some of the slower varieties. Put them i a heated propagator to germinate, then grow them on on a sunn windowsill, or with growlights.
I get good results putting them out of doors in large pots against sunny wall at the end of May/early June.
More detailed novice chilli growing instructions can be found at site like this. 'growing chilli peppers thechileman.org (http://www.thechileman.org/index.php )
You do realise that Nagas are so hot they can be dangerous and, in an quantity, are practically inedible to normal people. You would do wel to buy some other types of chilli seed and try those too, perhaps yo might enjoy them. They are a very rewarding plant to grow. I gro certain types, such as Bolivian Twilight (amazing blue colour of th immature fruit) mainly as ornamentals

Chillies are cultivated for ornament, ornamental plants and their fruit, which can then be harvested green, food, or left to mature, mostly red, but some are orange, yellow or even chocolate brown depending on the variety This usually takes about 2-3 weeks. Chillies grow in similar conditions to tomatoes although better results are obtained at higher temperatures and humidity. Achieve a better harvest, grow in greenhouses, although they can be grown outside in sheltered places in a lot of sun. Plan to grow plants to give them a long season to ensure ripe fruits before the days get shorter and cold weather comes, therefore, to sow in spring and a heated propagator, transplanting when all signs of the last frost is gone.

On top of the execllent advice already given, I would suggest that you use a nutrient feed that has been specfically produced for Chilli's, nutrient f eeds that are produced just for chilli's are far more specialised in their nutrient make up, which should give you a far better harvest. I currently u se Chilli focus made by Growth Technology
I have used Chilli Focus several times now and it definately increases my y eild. I would also suggest starting them off in february, under grow lights and a little heated propagator, we simply dont have enough strong sun ligh t in the UK to grow straight outdoors from the end of April/May and expect a huge yeild by September.
All of the partially grown tomatoe and chilli plants etc in garden centres in March are started of indoors grown under artificial light.

http://www.garden.org/foodguide/browse/veggie/eggplant_care/521 So, before planting, add some organic fertilizer, like dehydrated chicken manure, or any other type of animal manure. The numbers 10-10-10 refer to the percentages, by weight, of nitrogen (N), phosphate (P2O5) and potassium (KCl) in the bag of fertilizer.
------- http://www.coopext.colostate.edu/4dmg/VegFruit/peppers.htm Peppers enjoy an well-amended soil that contains plenty of organic matter, supplemented with a balanced fertilizer or better yet, one with slightly higher nitrogen and phosphorous levels. Place in an area that will receive the most sun and plant 18 inches apart with rows 3 feet apart. ------ http://www.sfc.ucdavis.edu/Research/chili.html Chicken manure (three to four tons per acre) is custom applied a week or more prior to listing.
1 acre = 43,560 sq. ft.
8,000 lb./acre = 18.37 lb. chicken manure/ 100 sq.ft.
