Soak, for a faster germination, the seeds about 12 hours prior to sowing in tepid water. This softens the seeds and make the germination a bit easier. Sow from february on in trays with some moist pottingsoil. Sow shallow and thinly and cover the seeds with a tiny layer of soil. Put the trays in a propagator with lid to keep the temperature as even and constant as possible. This helps also with the germination. Remove the lid when the seedlings emerge. Keep moist, warm and light. Replant the seedlings to large, individual pots after about 2-3 weeks.
Transplant Your seedlings, after the Ice Saints have gone (half may), and there's no longer any danger of nightsfrost, outdoors in a greenhouse or hothouse. Sweet peppers love warmth and they need a lot of warmth, sunlight and shelter for a good harvest. Give Your plants a sturdy support and from the moment the fruits are going to set each week some liquid fertilizer. Harvest the sweet peppers by cutting them with scissors of the plant or by twisting them of the plant.
