    Default Bell Pepper Seeds

    Where do you buy Bell Pepper Seeds? I grew some this year from seeds bought at Wilko, they turned out ok but not the biggest. For next year looking for larger ones, any recommendations?

    I grew California Wonder this year. Grew them in 12l buckets with BFB in the compost and a good feed every 2 weeks. Good sized fruits if you managed number of fruits.

    Better results with pointed peppers like

    Palermo Pointed Red
    Golden Marconi
    Nokturn aka Nocturne

    but was not able to save any of their seed

    I remember getting decent size fruit from 'king of the north' pepper which I was given but the seeds seem easy enough to get hold of.

    I like mavras & gourmet sweet peppers you can buy the seeds in most garden centres. What size pot did you use,try a wider container?

    Mine always crop a lot better when grown in the greenhouse border.
