Sow seeds indoors ¼" deep. Peppers germinate best in warm
soil, so gentle bottom heat may be helpful until seedlings emerge. Wait to
transplant outdoors until soil is warm.
Pepper varieties come from tropical humid regions. The
temperature, moisture, and air circulation all play a role in growing plants
from seeds. Too little heat, too much moisture, and lack of air circulation
will cause poor results. Do not use jiffy peat pots, plugs, or potting
soil as the soil becomes too dry or too wet, which can lead to disease and fungus. We have experienced disease and low
germination when using these types of products. Use Organic Seed Starting
Material for best germination results.
Peppers, like tomatoes, grow in well-drained fertile soil. Almost all peppers have the same requirements for successful
growth. Plant them in good, well-drained, fertile soil – and make sure
they get lots of sunlight and a good inch of water per week. In many
ways, they mimic the same requirements needed for growing great tomatoes.
At Planting Time:
We plant all of our peppers with a good shovel full of compost in
the planting hole, and then give them a good dose of compost tea every few
weeks for the first 6 weeks of growth. We also mulch around each of our
pepper plants with a good 1 to 2″ thick
layer of compost.
Peppers often like to take their sweet time germinating. They can
be up in a week, and some will take almost a month. Even with paper towel
germination testing, they can take long. I am not sure why, but it is a normal
occurrence. So plan and make sure you start them early enough! Also, remember
they like heat to germinate so make sure you have a heating mat or something to
keep the soil warm. Placing them up on top of the fridge often works too since
it is normally warmer up there.
Peppers do very well grown in pots.

When To Plant ?
The best time to plant in your area depends on the climate and
rainfall patterns as well as the species you are planting. In cool climates,
plant annuals, perennials or mixtures of annuals and perennials in spring,
early summer or late fall. Fall plantings should be late enough so that seeds
do not germinate until spring. Perennials can also be sown in early fall
provided that there are at least 10-12 weeks of growing time before the plants
go dormant for the winter. Late fall plantings are advantageous when
supplemental irrigation cannot be provided and adequate rainfall is anticipated
in the spring.
In mild climates, plant during the cooler months of the year,
fall through spring, for best results. Fall plantings done prior to periods of
rainfall will insure an early display of flowers the following spring.
What is an heirloom or heritage seed?
The terms heirloom and heritage are synonymous. An heirloom plant is an open-pollinated,
cultivated plant, or cultivar. Heirloom plants are not used in modern
large-scale agricultural, but they were traditionally grown during earlier
periods in human history. All heirloom seed are open-pollinated.
What is the difference
between open-pollinated and hybrid seeds?
Open-pollinated plants are pollinated by birds, insects, wind, or other natural
means. Under these conditions the plant will produce seeds naturally. When
these seeds are harvested and re-planted they will reproduce the same plant as
the parent. Conversely, a hybrid plant is the result of controlled pollination
of inbred parent plants. The plant’s seeds are often sterile and, if they do
germinate, they will not reliably produce the same plant as the parent or the
What is the difference
between GMO and non-GMO seeds?
A genetically modified organism (GMO) is an organism whose genetic substance
has been changed using genetic engineering methods. Non-GMO seeds have not been
genetically changed, and they are traditionally the same as they were
originally created. Non-GMO seeds have all of the nutrition that animal and
human bodies need for maximum growth and nutrition. Traditional seeds grow into
plants that have been consumed for thousands of years. Non-GMO seeds offer you
the peace of mind that the foods you grow and eat are as nature intended.
