Growing Peppers from Sowing to Harvest

Whether you prefer sweet peppers or hot, there’s none more satisfying than those you’ve grown yourself. Now’s the time to get sowing! In this short video we’ll …


  1. My wife is from Peru and they have a lot of chillis and peppers you can't buy here or are hard to find. We tried to grow Aji Amarillo peppers from seeds but were unsuccessful. My mother in law tossed some seeds out and just happened to grow. We got quite a few of the peppers before the plants died to frost. Made me sad.

  2. As a brand new beginner gardener in zone 7a(just for full disclosure) I got myself a red bulb, getting ready to get me some indoor dirt on thursday night maybe friday night and do either habanero or banana pepper indoors all winter. My 5 yo is in love with plants and we got an late start this year so wanna keep her love for it going by doing some peppers. She won't be tempted to eat them because they are too hot and if I can get this right, we'll have our first successful plant to maturity and a head start next time around. Love the video. New sub.

  3. I planted mine in a polytunnel with no knowledge and have plants 5ft high. There are peppers on them but it's August and I'm not sure if it will stay warm enough to get a good year will be much better I think. But hey..this season was my first year of growing anything since 1984-5.. So I'm happy.

  4. I started growing serranos this year in a large pot. I bought a very small plant and transferred it into the large pot I purchased and as of right now I have harvested 15 (I just now came back inside from picking 3 more and 3 more are growing). The one's I have eaten already are quite nice in the heat range but could be hotter. I also have 5 tomatoe plants that are growing and those are producing more than I could even imagine and they are pretty nice size in diameter but still green which is ok because I love fried green tomatoes as much as red ones once they're at their full potential in growth. This is my first year growing tomatoes as well and I didn't think to watch any video's, do any research or ask someone for advice so I'm quite pleased and proud of myself the way things are turning out since I haven't done this since I was a little boy over 40 year's ago when I'd help my granddaddy with his garden and that man had a HUGE variety of things he was growing and my great grandmother had an orchard of different trees of fruits literally a mile long and around 100 yards wide not to mention another area she had her watermelons and cantaloupes etc etc. Nice video and me doing this brings back so many great childhood memories I cherish so very much. Happy planting and harvesting to all and I wish you all the best of luck

  5. I can group huge tomato plants, but pepper plants like to take their own sweet time growing big and I may only get a handful of peppers per plant. I like to put pepper plants in flower beds to give color and save space in the garden. I find that Thai, Poinsettia, and Cascabella give a nice color. I will have to see how Cubaneles do this year in addition to the plain bell variety.

  6. We've grown ours from seed harvested from shop bought organic peppers. Hot chilli really helps produce endorphins and reduces pain, there are even creams with it in, but I prefer not to waste the taste!

  7. The sweet peppers there are male and female peppers, as I've been told. (Male peppers have three bulges and the bottom of the plant and female peppers have four bulges) Do I need a male and female plant? I do not have too much luck growing them Any Help would be greatly appreciated

  8. Really enjoy your video's but …..the comment at the start…"now's the time to sow them"…..makes me reach for my crystal ball. Can you be sure to give a definitive time frame and tell us where in the world you are please. Other than that, great, as always.

  9. I started growing peppers last year started with sweet banna peppers and chili both grew great this year I have 2 bell pepper plants 2 banna pepper 2 chilli and a few other random hot/sweet peppers I mean peppers go well with almost any fish.

  10. Just potted my first chille seeds. An I right I’m thinking you shouldn’t put the pit in direct sunlight ? Or should I put the pot in my window which does have some sunlight throughout the day ?
