Sweet Pepper Seed Planting Information:

Sweet peppers can be grown anywhere as long as you have 4 months without frost. You can also grow sweet peppers in containers. Sweet Pepper seeds are sensitive to temperature and moisture. Do not soak the seeds in any type of solution or water before planting, as this may damage the seeds and they may rot and may not germinate. Plant your seeds indoors between January and March, or 5 to 7 weeks before setting outside in garden. Use Miracle Gro Seed Starting Material for best germination results. When plant is 12" or taller, transplant them outdoors. Only plant peppers outdoors on a cloudy day, just prior to getting rain. Plant when soil is warm, at least 2 weeks after last frost, and when temperatures remain above 70 F. Please read the Tips on Growing Hot Peppers as Sweet peppers and hot peppers are grown in relatively the same manner. Plants can grow 3 to 4 ft tall.

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Water well with soaker hoses during dry and hot spells.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro every two weeks.

Harvest Tips:

Harvest sweet peppers when they are green or fully mature using a garden scissor so you don't damage the plant. Pick peppers as they mature to encourage new buds to form.


BD – Blossom Drop

Type: Physiological Disorder

Blossom Drop affects the growth of eggplants, peppers, and tomatoes. Symptoms include flowers forming then dropping without forming fruit or when small fruit drop. Tomatoes and peppers will drop their blossoms when environmentally stressed, when temperatures are too cold or too hot, the weather is too dry or too wet, and when the soil is too nutrient rich or deficient. Most tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants will drop blossoms when daytime temperatures are above 90 degrees F and/or nighttime temperatures are above 75 degrees F. Blossoms will also drop when night temperatures drop below 55 degrees F.
