Capsicum – Green Pepper

Image result for sowing green pepper seedsLast week I bought peppers to use for tea and kept the seeds. I left them to dry out and today have sprinkled about thirty onto moist compost and put them into a polythene bag.They should germinate in about ten days. I’m not sure that they will come true but it’s worth a try. I have grown peppers before and think that they need a long time to grow in our climate and that is why I am starting early. 25th January. Germination update – about twenty seedlings showing through today 5th Feb that’s 13 days. I shall leave them in the tray covered for a little longer. Update – 13th Feb, all thirty seeds germinated. I have potted on six into three inch pots.
