Mr. Fothergill’s Hot Pepper Paper Lantern Seeds

4.50 “Price excl. VAT: 4.50

Somewhat reminiscent of traditional paper lanterns these blisteringly hot, elongated and slightly wrinkled peppers mature red and are ideal for the greenhouse, polytunnel or frame.

For greenhouse crops, sow thinly indoors, February-April, 0.5cm deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 7-21 days. Transplant to individual pots when large enough to handle. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Plant out May-June, to large pots, growing bags or into warm, well-drained soil in the greenhouse border. For outdoor crops: delay indoor sowing until March or April. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions, avoiding frosts, before planting out 40cm apart, when frosts are over. Choose a warm, sunny, sheltered spot. Outdoor crops will be smaller and later than those in a greenhouse. Harvest: July-October.
