How to grow Sweet pepper 'Islander'

  • Full Sun

  • Medium

Islander likes a position of full sun and remember to water moderately. Keep in mind when planting that Islander is thought of as tender, so it is really important to plant out well after your last frost date. Ideally plant in potting mix, loamy and silty soil and try to keep the ph of your soil between the range of 5.5 and 7.5 as Islander likes to be in weakly acidic soil to weakly alkaline soil.

Growing Islander from seed

Sow at a depth of approx. 0.25 inches (0.64 cm) and aim for a distance of at least 0.98 inches (2.5 cm) between Sweet pepper plants. Soil temperature should be kept higher than 20°C / 68°F to ensure good germination.

By our calculations, you should look at sowing Islander about 60 days before your last frost date.

Transplanting Islander

Ensure that temperatures are mild and all chance of frost has passed before planting out, as Islander is a tender plant.
