Sweet Bell Peppers

Posted: 18/07/2014 at 15:16

I had mine in a blowaway and they were covered in white fly - both sweet peppers and chilli's. So I threw caution to the wind and planted them outside in our veggie patch - that was about a month ago and they are going great, fingers crossed they stay that way, lots of peppers and chilli's, just waiting for them to ripen now - any tips on speeding that up!?

Hi everyone, on the subject of cauliflowers, miraculously we have one!   I popped a few in this year just to see what happened and bingo - question now is, how do you tell when it's ready?  I understand you need to pick when head is still tight and not opening up but what sort of size should it reach, ours is proably about 5-6 inches across.

Thanks as always

Thanks KEF, I'll try again next year and delay planting, you live and learn.

Morning all

So after growing a mutant walking stick sprout my over wintered onions which were looking rather splendid have bolted! Tricky business this veg malarky.

Am I right in thinking they won't grow much now and won't store well? Am thinking dig em up and make some chutney?

Thanks

A giant sprout, now there is a happy thought!!

Dove - I think I will leave it, be interesting to see how high it goes.... will no doubt be asking how to save the seeds in the fullness of time...

Thanks all

In the ground in my new veggie plot at the back of my garden, I didn't enrich the soil or anything like that. Just dug a hole and popped them in. The rest are beginning to catch up with the monster!
