Sowing seeds early; Sow seeds ¼ inch deep in soil, keep the soil moist, seedlings emerge in about 10-21 days. As soon as seedlings emerge, provide plenty of light. If you are growing in small cells, you may need to transplant the seedlings to 3 or 4 inch pots when seedlings have at least 3 pairs of leaves before transplanting to the garden so they have enough room to develop strong roots. Before planting in the garden, seedling plants need to be “hardened off”.

Planting in the Garden: To get an early start with your pepper plants, particularly in the North, cover the prepared bed with a dark colored polyethylene mulch at least a week before transplanting. This will heat the soil beneath and provide a better growing condition for young pepper plants. The mulch will also help the soil retain moisture throughout the season as the pepper plants grow.
Select a location in full sun with good soil. Peppers should be set 18 inches apart in a row with the rows spaced 2-3 feet inches apart. Peppers may also be planted in containers. Use a container at least 18-24 inches wide and deep and use a potting mix rather than garden soil.
