You don’t have to be an experienced gardener to grow luscious, vibrant green bell peppers. All it takes is patience, attention and a little knowledge of the right growing conditions. Green peppers, like most other varieties, thrive in the heat, which is why they have such a celebrated history in countries with arid climates.
With this in mind, it’s important to know where to begin cultivating green pepper seedlings, how frequently to water them and when the best time is to transplant them outside to grow on their own.
Purchase green pepper seeds from the grocery store or farmer’s market. Visit your local grocer, farmer’s market or plant nursery and buy a package of green bell pepper seeds. Peppers come in many different varieties, and some options might not be available at all times of the year. Shop around until you find a place that sells healthy, organic green bell pepper seeds.
- If you have a large garden, make the most of your planting space and look into other types of peppers that can be grown alongside green peppers.
- You can also save and reuse seeds from the previous year’s harvest if you’ve grown green peppers in the past.
