- Attractive and productive plants
- Ideal on bright windowsills in the kitchen or greenhouse
- Long yellow sweet peppers in abundance from July
Grow sweet pepper Lemon Dream at home and enjoy harvesting fresh, attractive, long yellow sweet peppers in big numbers from July – perfect for summer dishes and eating al fresco. Look forward to peppers right through to October from your productive plants.
Your pepper plants grow best in the greenhouse or on a windowsill that receives full sun. They are happy outdoors too; just make sure you have a sunny and sheltered position and be ready to bring your plants indoors if the weather turns.
How to sow:
Get 9cm pots and fill them with seed and cutting compost, suitable for seeds that are just germinating. The compost has just the right degree of nutrients for happy seedlings.
Position three seeds 0.5cm (1/4in) deep around the edge of a 9cm pot. Water the compost and label and date your pepper Lemon Dream as a useful guide to refer back to.
Keep somewhere that gets 16°C (61°F) of warmth and keep the soil moist until your seedlings reach a size they can transplant into bigger pots. Lift the seedlings by the leaves and place one seedling to its own pot from now on. Transplant again into bigger pots by degrees as your peppers grow. Use bamboo canes to support the stems if they start to flop with the weight of the fruit.
