Pepper Seeds

Growing suggestions for pepper seeds

Sow pepper seeds indoors with heat from February, the ideal temperature is 20°C. If sown in a seed tray, prick out seedlings into 10cm pots once they germinate.  If grown in plugs, pot them on when they have two sets of true leaves. Transplant into final position in May, either under cover or in a sunny sheltered spot. Plants may need staking as they grow. The main shoot can be pinched out when the plants are 30cm tall to encourage side shoots, but this is not essential.
