Care Guide

Planting Your Plugs

  • Unpack plugs immediately and stand them in water for an hour.
  • If you canít do this, they can sit in their mini greenhouse for a week if upright and not too wet.
  • Plugs may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but theyíll quickly recover.
  • Put them somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • When potting on, handle plugs carefully. Pot on using our 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays, using good multi-purpose compost.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry. They donít like to be left in standing water.
  • Position in full sun.
  • Feed and water regularly and pick peppers when they're firm and completely red.

Growing Peppers

  • Keep you pepper plants in a frost free place until the chance of frost has passed.
  • Transplant to a larger pot and move to the final growing position in a warm, sunny spot.
  • If planting in the ground, plant 60cm (2ft) apart in well prepared, free draining soil.
  • Add support, such as a bamboo cane to each plant, as they will become heavy as the peppers form.
  • Your peppers will be ready to harvest from July, or when the peppers red all over and firm.
  • Cut the peppers from the plant using secateurs or scissors.

Our experienced team at the nursery will always carefully package and send your plants nursery fresh in the perfect condition to thrive once you receive and plant them. Although most plants are extremely tough and will not be affected by all but the most extreme of weather conditions, we always avoid dispatching the most perishable plants if extreme frosts or heat is forecast. We also avoid dispatching orders over Bank Holiday weekends.
