How To Grow Red Bell Pepper From Seed: Bell Peppers do best when grown in pots in a greenhouse as they require plenty of heat. Sow in small pots or seedling modules. Sow 1 – 2 seeds per pot/cell. Cover lightly with compost and keep moist. Pepper seed germination will be best if kept at room temperature while germinating. When the seedlings get their first true leaves, pot them on into a larger pot. Repeat this as the plant grows, giving it a bigger pot as it grows.
After the plant flowers, the peppers will start to grow. They will turn from green to red as they ripen. They can be harvested once they are fully developed, even while still green.

About our Organic Irish Vegetable Seeds
We are passionate about providing high quality organic and open-pollinated seed to all of our customers. The term, open-pollinated seed means, seed that comes from plants where pollination has happened naturally.
Benefits of using open-pollinated seed: These seeds have been around much longer than F1 hybrid or genetically modified seed, therefore they evolve with our environment. The plants they produce are much more genetically diverse and therefore will have a much higher benefit to pollinators such as bees and butterflies.
Furthermore, using open-pollinated seed means you can produce the same plant the following season from saved seed.
This is not always the case with F1 hybrid and genetically modified seed.
