How to grow chilli peppers


1 packet (10 chilli pepper seeds) (23758)

Sowing

Sow Chilli Pepper seeds on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed sowing mix and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place seed trays in a propagator at a temperature of 25C (77F) until after germination, which takes up to 14 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination. Once germinated, reduce temperature and maintain at 15C (54F)


When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into individual 7.5cm (3") pots of compost. When plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, transplant them into grow bags or containers in a greenhouse or polytunnel, or grown outdoors from mid June, in a sheltered position in full sun. Space pepper plants at a distance of 50cm (20") apart.

More Info
Water chilli pepper plants regularly throughout the growing season and feed weekly with a high potash tomato fertiliser once the first fruits have set. Taller varieties of chilli peppers may require staking. In greenhouses, maintain high humidity by damping down paths daily. Harvest chillies singly by cutting them from the plant with secateurs or pull the entire plant when full of red peppers, and hang upside down in the kitchen for use over several months. Chilli peppers grown outdoors must be harvested before the first frosts.
