How to Get a Better Crop of Sweet Pepper

Peppers originate from hot, tropical climates, so it is best to grow them in a green/glass house or in a poly tunnel.

Keeping your young plants warm and moist, will help them to grow at a good rate.

As soon as you see flowers starting to form starting feeding with a liquid plant food, ideally a tomato feed.

Refer to our useful guide on how to grow sweet peppers for additional information and useful tips.

Common Issues

Keeping the plants in warm conditions can cause red spider mite, so make sure you mist your plants to keep them moist.

When watering, make sure this is kept to a regular routine, as sporadic watering can cause blossom end rot.

Aphids can be a problem, so check your plants on a regular basis and at the first sign, treat the plants with a insecticide that is suitable to be used on edibles.
