How To Grow Sweet Pepper
Growing bell peppers isn’t difficult, but the temperature is an important factor.
- Start pepper seed indoors 7 to 10 weeks before the date you intend to set seedlings into the garden.
- Sow 3 to 4 seeds to a pot or flats in a seedlings tray.
- Sow seed ¼ to ½ inch deep.
- Germination is best in a warmer environment.
- Keep the seed starting mix just moist until seedlings emerge.
- Clip away the weaker seedlings once the strongest seedling is about 5 cm tall.
- Seedlings started indoors should be kept under grow light or in a sunny window after germination.
- Availability of water to keep the seed starting to mix from drying.
- Transfer seedlings to a larger container once they are 5-10 cm tall; be sure that seedlings have sufficient room for root growth. This process is called “potting up.” Continue to pot up seedlings as they outgrow containers—until they are transplanted into the garden or a very large container.
- Space pepper plants 45-61 cm apart. Space rows 61-91 cm apart
- Young peppers transplanted should be 10-15 cm tall.
- Plants started indoors should be acclimatized to outdoor temperatures before transplants. Set plants outdoors for a few hours each day before transplanting them to the farm.
- Grow peppers in full sun. Peppers should get 8 hours of sun each day.
- Plant peppers in soil rich in organic matter. Compost or commercial organic planting mix into beds prior to planting.
- The soil should be moisture-retentive but well-draining. Slightly sandy or loamy soil is best.
- Pre-warm the soil before transplanting by placing mulch film over the planting bed for two weeks prior to transplanting peppers. The plastic will transfer solar heat to the soil.
- Set transplants in the garden at the same depth they were growing in the container. Do not plant deeper; buried stem may rot.
- It’s easy to determine when your peppers are ready to harvest. Begin to pick the peppers once they are 7.6 to 10 cm long and the fruit is firm and green.
- After you harvest the first crop of peppers, feel free to fertilize the plants to give them the energy they need to form another crop
