1 packet (10 pepper seeds) (TT00503)

Feed and water pepper plants regularly throughout the growing season to prevent the flower buds from dropping. Taller varieties of sweet peppers may require staking. Provide a thick mulch of organic matter around the base of the plants to help conserve moisture and reduce weed growth. In greenhouses, maintain high humidity by damping down paths daily. Peppers can be harvested while still green, or left on the plant to ripen to red or yellow. Harvest peppers by cutting them from the plant by with secateurs. Peppers grown outdoors must be harvested before the first frosts.
Sow seeds March to April, in pots or trays on the surface of barely moist seed compost and cover with a sprinkling of finely sieved compost. Place in a propagator at 18-21C until germination, which takes up to 10 days.

Transplant seedlings into small pots or cells until plants are about 10cm high. Plant out 45cm apart in growbags or large pots, or outdoors in a sunny spot once frost risk has passed.
