When to sow
Where to Sow Astor Pepper Seeds
Sow seed on the surface of a free draining compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite and place at a temperature 18-21 degrees celcius until seeds germinate.
What to do next
Prick out seedlings when large enough to handle into 7cm (3") pots and grow on under glass. Once plants reach 10cm (4") high transplant into growbags or 25cm (10") pots and grow on under glass. Feed once a week with tomato fertiliser after first fruits have set.
To help support the weight of the crop it is best to tie plants to some canes as they grow.
