Growing Instructions
Plant 45cm apart in a sunny but sheltered position in well drained soil. They prefer to be in a greenhouse but can be grown in a pot in a conservatory or in a sunny spot on your patio but you will not get much of a crop outside. Peppers like water, keep them well watered until established and in dry weather (but not soggy). If we have an intensely hot summer (which is rare I know) you will need to give them a bit of shade to protect their delicate leaves. Once they reach roughly 30cm they will need staking for support as the peppers start to grow. Feed them once you see at least 2 or 3 peppers growing NOT before. If you only see one pepper growing and it’s about 5cm and no sign of any others growing, pick it and this should promote more to grow, remember not to feed it until you see 2 or 3 growing.
All peppers suffer from cold feet so they are better grown in a grow bag or pot/container because they warm up quicker than soil.
