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.

Note: The temperature, moisture, and air circulation all play a role in growing plants from seeds. Too little heat, too much moisture, and lack of air circulation will cause poor germination results. Warning: Do not use peat pots, plugs, or potting soil for growing sweet peppers from seeds as the soil may become too dry or too wet, which can lead to disease, fungus, and poor germination results. Do not use covers or lids as lack of air and condensation moisture will cause poor germination results, disease, and fungus. Use Miracle-Gro© Seed Starting Mix for best germination results.

Strong plants that did not need staking, and grew well on minimal fertilizer.  Lots of chinese tea-cup sized peppers that are sweet and great for stuffing.
