Planting & Care
While they are pest tolerant, peppers can be susceptible to mildews so they will prefer a warm and dry climate. Keep in mind however, that while pepper plants grow well in warm summer temperatures, many varieties will wait until nights begin to reach cooler temperatures to produce the bulk of their harvest.
Sunlight: Full Sun
Soil: well-drained soil
Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer
- Using a good quality, moist seed compost, sow your seeds in a propagator and cover with 6mm (¼") compost.
- Place on a windowsill or in a greenhouse at approximately 21-24ºC (70-75ºF) to germinate (usually 5-7 days).
- Transfer seedlings into 7.
- 5cm (3") pots and grow on.
- Plant out in a sunny, sheltered position 50cm (20") apart after risk of frost has passed.
- Support your plants with a cane as the fruit develops.
- Feed regularly with a proprietary fertiliser.
- They prefer a small amount of water in the morning, and need fairly good drainage.
- Irregular watering can cause the plants to drop their flowers or fruit.
- Try not to leave them standing in a waterlogged pot or in a pool of water, especially overnight, as they really don’t like it.
A sweet pepper used pickled or in salads, the Hungarian Sweet Wax Pepper will produce light yellowish green peppers that will turn to orange then red when mature; just sow them in a sunny spot with well drained soil and enjoy a bountiful harvest.
Chillies can be strung up and dried in an airy spot, or pickled, or used to flavour cooking oil. If you’re using them to flavour oil, you can use them fresh then strain out and discard them, or dry them thoroughly then place in the oil and leave them there.
