|Latin Name:||Capsicum annuum|
| Growing Info:
Sow inside from Feb-Apr. Earlier sowing gives longer harvests. Sow into pots filled with free-draining compost. Cover with vermiculite and keep at 21°C. Uncover once seedlings appear and prick out into individual 12-15cm pots once 2-3cm high. Plant into their final position 30cm apart in the greenhouse/tunnel; alternatively acclimatise and plant outside once frosts have passed.
Stake plants to keep upright as they get taller. Feed with high potassium fertiliser weekly after flowering starts to ensure a bumper crop.
