When to Sow Bishops Crown Chilli Pepper Seeds

February to April. Plant out May to June.

Where to Sow

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 27-32°C until seeds germinate. Please note, this is a chinese species requiring a higher temperature and is slower to germinate than traditional peppers.

What to do Next

Prick out seedlings when large enough to handle into 7cm (3in) pots and grow on underglass. Once plants reach 10cm (4in) high transplant into growbags or 25cm (10in) pots and grow on underglass. Feed once a week with tomato fertiliser once first fruits have set.

Harvest

Late July to October.
