Traditionally you need a long season and a sunny greenhouse for worthwhile success with peppers - not so with Sweet Pepper Boneta F1. We've selected this mini-fruited pepper for its UK garden performance, heavy cropping and pretty appearance. Set this compact, early-flowering pepper on a sunny patio or sundrenched border after the last frost to enjoy an abundance of successional flowers leading to a big crop of creamy-lime coloured fruits, shown off against lush dark foliage. The thick-fleshed fruits ripen to red and each weigh around 100g on maturity. Height: 50cm (20"). Spread: 40cm (16").


1 packet (15 sweet pepper seeds) (61885)

Sow sweet pepper seeds on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed sowing mix and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place seed trays in a propagator at a temperature of 18-25C (64-77F) until after germination, which takes 7-10 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination.


When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into individual 7.5cm (3") pots of compost and grow on in cooler conditions. When plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, transplant them into grow bags and containers, or plant them in well prepared beds of fertile, moist, well drained soil. Peppers may be grown undercover in a greenhouse or polytunnel, or grown outdoors in a sheltered position in full sun. When growing peppers outdoors, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to transplanting them. Space sweet pepper plants at a distance of 45cm (18") apart.

Water sweet pepper plants regularly throughout the growing season and feed weekly with a high potash tomato fertiliser once the first fruits have set. Taller varieties of sweet peppers may require staking. Provide a thick mulch of organic matter around the base of the plants to help conserve moisture and reduce weed growth. In greenhouses, maintain high humidity by damping down paths daily. Harvest peppers singly by cutting them from the plant with secateurs. Peppers grown outdoors must be harvested before the first frosts.
