Indoor pepper Plants - Winter Care

Posted: 11/11/2014 at 12:58

They are so easy to grow from seed NB I dont think its worth the space to over winter. Some do, I dont.

I just buy a pepper of my choice from the supermarket or wherever you shop, take the seeds out and plant straight away in a pot, about 3 to each. They need warmth to start, I have never had a propagator or heat pad, kitchen windowsill is fine. 

I do find they germinate better from fresh seed, so I dont save now.

Fuchsias and begonias are sometimes plagued with vine weevil, tip all the plants out of the soil and put it on your compost heap, making sure you get every weevil out, the check the roots on the fuchsias,  If no weevils, cut off the very thick roots, you only need the fibrey bits, repot, then keep in a frost free greenhouse. Cut them back to about an inch when they show signs of shooting next spring.

With the begonias you dry them off on the bench, tap all the old soil off and wrap in paper, then keep in a  frost free shed.

Slugs.. sod the organic approach I just want them dead!
