1 Packet (6 Sweet Pepper Seeds) (TT54654)
Sow sweet 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 18-25C (64-77F) until after germination, which takes 7-10 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination.
When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into individual 7.5cm (3") pots of compost and grow on in cooler conditions. When plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, transplant them into grow bags and containers, or plant them in well prepared beds of fertile, moist, well drained soil. Peppers may be grown undercover in a greenhouse or polytunnel, or grown outdoors in a sheltered position in full sun. When growing peppers outdoors, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to transplanting them. Space sweet pepper plants at a distance of 45cm (18") apart.

Great results after years of trying with other varieties 2016-09-28
I've tried and failed to successfully grow sweet peppers in my greenhouse for years, which was really disappointing as my daughter loves them in her lunch box. I've even tried grafted plants with little success. This year I tried Sweet Pepper 'Mini Bell Improved Mix' and they have been brilliant! The peppers aren't the biggest, but my daughter loves the flavour, and they are ideal for lunch boxes. The vigorous plants are about four feet tall and covered in fruits. They have been a bit slow to ripen - but I've put this down to the lousy summer. I will definitely be growing these again!
