Growing Sweet Pepper
Bell peppers are easy to grow, but temperature is a key consideration.
Begin pepper plants indoors. 7–10 weeks before to the day you plan to plant seedlings in the garden.
In a seedlings tray, sow three to four seeds per pot or flat.
Plant seeds 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep.
Warmer conditions are ideal for germination.
Till the seedlings appear, keep the seed-starting mixture gently damp.
When the strongest seedling reaches a height of around 5 cm, clip away the weaker sprouts.
After germination, seedlings started inside should be kept under a grow lamp or in a sunny window.
Water is readily available to prevent the seed from starting to mingle.
Once seedlings are 5 to 10 cm tall, move them to a larger container, making sure they have enough room for root development. This procedure is known as “potting up.” As seedlings outgrow their pots, keep repotting them until they are moved into the garden or a very big container.
Plant peppers 45 to 61 cm apart. rows 61 to 91 cm apart
Young peppers should be 10-15 cm tall when transplanted.
Before transplanting, plants that were started indoors should become accustomed to the outdoor climate. Before transferring plants to the farm, place them outside for a few hours each day.
Peppers do best in full sun. Each day, peppers need 8 hours of direct sunlight.
Plant peppers in organically rich soil. Prior to planting, add compost or commercial organic planting mix to beds.
The soil should retain moisture while still having good drainage. The ideal soil is slightly sandy or loamy.
Before transplanting peppers, pre-warm the soil by covering the planting area with mulch film for two weeks. Solar heat will be transmitted to the soil through the plastic.
Plant transplants at the same depth they were growing in the container in the garden. Planting deeper could cause the stem to decay.
When your peppers are ready for harvest, you can easily tell. Once the peppers are 7.6 to 10 cm long and the fruit is firm and green, you may start picking them.
Feel free to fertilize the plants after you’ve harvested the first crop of peppers to provide them with the energy they need to produce another crop.
