How To Grow The Best Peppers.
This year we have had a large demand for advice on growing peppers in an English climate.Although it may come simple to some for others the process can be a bit challenging.Here at GardenAdvice we provide expert tips on how one could get the best peppers.
If growing peppers on a large scale, one should know that the ideal place to grow and get the best peppers is in a Poly tunnel along with a mixture of other crops such as Tomatoes and companion plants like Marigold.
If one is considering growing on a small scale they are best grown in pots with compost and started early in the year preferably New Year’s and preferably on a kitchen sill.
When sowing,place the seeds individually in a 75mm pot with compost and place them on the window sill making sure that the pots are turned by a third daily to ensure the plants grow straight.
When the young peppers reach about 5 pairs at true leaves,remove the top shoots,this will help to create a bushier plant,Then around March you could begin to re pot the plants in 150-250mm pots again with compost and stand them on your porch,patio etc.
As May arrives and the risk of frost has passed they can stay on the patio though one should remember to cover them overnight for protection and to feed them once a week with Tomato feed which provide the plants with high amounts of potash also bearing in mind to move the plants back indoors as the season closes and the frosty weather approaches so that one will be able to maintain the developing peppers and also be on your way to producing the ‘best’ peppers.
