tash's Pepper Purple Beauty Care Instructions

If sowing directly, aim to sow 0.25 inches (0.64 cm) deep and try to ensure a gap of at least 0.98 inches (2.5 cm).

Sweet pepper 'Purple Beauty' normally grows to a mature height of 45.0 cm (that's 1.46 feet imperial) so ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant.

Your garden has partial sun light - a full sun position will ensure your plant thrives.

Your garden has sandy loam soil: planting in loam soil will ensure your plant thrives.

Remember to water moderately.

Your garden's USDA Hardiness Zone (5b) is not within the ideal known range for Sweet pepper 'Purple Beauty'. The recommended range is between Zone 9 and 11. You may have to reassess this planting for suitability in your garden.

Try to keep the ph of your soil between the range of 5.5 and 7.5 as Sweet pepper 'Purple Beauty' likes to be 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.

    Thanks. After I put them there my daughter moved on to different games so I moved them to under my laptop (which is always on). :)
