Easy to grow 2011-09-27
I wasn't sure I'd be able to grow peppers in the Scottish Borders, albeit in a greenhouse, but thought I'd give it a go. I am delighted: by early September a cluster of dark green fruits rapidly turned bright orange and even better they have a lovely fresh flavour and good, crisp texture which was superior to shop-bought orange peppers. I can see I'll have a sequence of fruits well into October. On little tip: don't cover the pots when germinating. I made that mistake at first, but once I replanted with only a thin covering of compost and full light (and bottom heat) I had a good response. The growth seems slow at first, say, compared with tomatoes, but in the end they're well worth the space in a greenhouse.
