Growing peppers in the UK is not the easiest of crops. For anyone looking to give it a try, growing one the modern varieties is advised, and provided you give them right conditions they will reward you with a good harvest. Being sub-tropical plants of origin, this generally means plenty of light, warmth, feed and water.
If you have a heated greenhouse or propagator, pepper seeds can be sown from late January - but for unheated propagation, sowing is best left till March or early April.
If you are after the best results, we suggest you invest in a heat mat or a heated propagator. These growing tips assume that is the case.
Peppers will reward you for giving them the right nutrition. If we hear people moaning that their crops have been poor, 99% of the time it is because they have not fed them properly. If you are not using a slow release feed, a good quality liquid tomato feed will be fine.
Pepper plants have very few major pest - slugs and aphids will probably be the biggest problem. If growing in pots - a copper ring round the pot will usually stop slugs, whilst SB Plant Invigorator will clear any aphid problem and can be applied as needed.
You should have fruit ready to harvest from late July to the Autumn. You can pick peppers green or wait until they have changed colour.
