How To Plant Peppers And Chillies In The Greenhouse
Save money and plant easy to grow chilli and pepper plants
You will need:
- chilli and pepper plants,
We are growing chilli and pepper plants in a bed as they need quite a lot of nutrients and water and are less likely to dry out in summer, but they can be grown in large pots using good quality peat-free multi-purpose compost. Fork a couple of handfuls of Growmore into the bed.
Plant the chillies and peppers securely, about 30cm (12”) apart and water in. Keep evenly damp otherwise the fruits will be tough; too much water and the plants will be big and fleshy but lacking in flavour.
Feed weekly with a high potash fertiliser, such as Tomorite once the first fruits start to form.
Keep the vents open to ensure a good airflow and discourage any fungal infections.
