Sweet Pepper 'Mini Bell Improved Mix'
Sweet pepper 'Mini Bell Improved Mix' comes all the way from the USA, providing your greenhouse with tasty, bitesize peppers!
The latest breeding development in mini sweet peppers! Each plant produces small but stocky, blocky fruits in a mix of orange, red and chocolate. Ideal for UK greenhouse and patio growing. What's more, the bigger the pot you give them, the bigger the plant and the heavier they crop. For easy maintenance we recommend planting in a 2 litre pot to keep plants at around 1m (39") high.
An impressive twist on the conventional pepper, 'Mini Bell Improved Mix' provides a colourful collection of sweet peppers to make dinner time a bit more exciting.

Plant Care & Advice
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.
