Carol's Capsicum Seeds Care Instructions
Ensure a rough distance of 0.98 inches (2.5 cm) between seeds when sowing - look to sow at a depth of approximately 0.25 inches (0.64 cm) when sowing directly.
Ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant - Sweet pepper is known for growing to a height of approximately 45.0 cm (that's 1.46 feet in imperial).
Remember to water moderately.
Sweet pepper tends to grow best in a soil ph of between 5.5 and 7.5 meaning it does best in acidic to alkaline soil.
Common Sweet pepper problems include Alfalfa Mosaic Virus, Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus, Cucumber Mosaic Virus, Tobacco Mosaic Virus, and Tobacco Etch Virus, so keep a close eye out for any developing symptoms.
