RHS Award of Garden Merit winner.
Sweet Peppers belong to the genus Capsicum; Sweet peppers have very similar needs to the Tomato, although light levels are not so critical, owing to the lower temperatures at which Peppers should be grown to induce fruit setting.
Compost should be of pH 5.8-6.3 with medium levels of N, P, K, and Mg. High salts must be avoided. Give plants good light and space out as required, holding temperatures at not less than 22- 24oC if possible. Lower temperatures will suffice, but planting can be delayed.
When plug plants arrive transplant into individual 7.5cm (3") pots of compost and grow on at a minimum temperature of 15C (59F).
When plants are well grown, transplant into baskets and containers. If the plant is suited for growing outside when all risk of frost has passed gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before positioning baskets outdoors in a sheltered position in full sun once all frost risk has passed.
Suitable for the vegetable garden, allotments and containers.
Be prepared to water well and supplement feed with high-potash feed during season. Regular feeding is recommended.
