Chilli Pepper seeds require no prior treatment although steeping them in lukewarm water for 12 hours will encourage germination.

Sow pepper seeds about 1 cm deep into a seed tray or in small pots or cells. Cover lightly, water and place inside at between 20-25 ?C to aid germination, place the tray in a plastic bag. 
Sow January-March. 
Germination can be slow with some hot peppers.

Transplant the seedlings into small individual pots. Use rich compost and keep the plants between 20-30 Celsius during the growing season. 
For best production keep the plants in the Greenhouse, Polytunnel and Conservatory. Regular feeding is recommended.
