Product Description

Miracle-Gro Gro-Ables Sweet Pepper Seed Pods are the easy way to grow your own vegetables! Simply tear off the lid, push into the soil or compost and then water! The seed pod is a biodegradable cone shell that holds the plant seeds and a 6 month controlled release feed, it also retains moisture to ensure the seeds are getting the best start in their growing cycle. The seed pod is ergonimically designed to be pushed in to the soil with the seeds already sown at the correct depth so all you have to do is fill your planting area with soil, push in the pod and then water...everything else has already been taken care of!

Product Details

Care instructions
Do not plant outside until April once the risk of frost has passed. Start growing 6 to 8 weeks earlier indoors for an earlier harvest before transplanting outside if necessary.
Feeding instructions
Apply a weekly liquid feed such as Miracle-Gro Gro Your Own Veg & Fruit (043799) or Black Magic Black Elixir (414313) once the plant is a reasonable size
Hardiness
Not hardy requires mild to warm temperatures to grow outside
Harvesting period
Harvest from July to October
Annual
Grows and flowers for one season only
Planting instructions
Remove the lid completely and push the pod into loosened soil or compost until the pod is level with the soil surface - DO NOT COVER. Space seed pods 60cm apart if planting more than one. Water daily and if more than one seed germinates then remove all but one shoot when they reach 5cm tall - this ensures that all the plant food is used for yielding vegetables rather than supporting mutiple plants.
Planting position
Plant in full sun. Shelter from strong, cold winds.
Rate of growth
Fast
Soil type
Use a rich soil enriched with plenty of good quality compost such as Miracle-Gro Moisture Control (559513) or Black Magic Potting Mix (414315)
Sowing period
Outside in April & May. Indoors from February to April. Do not plant later than May as pod needs a good growing period before harvest.
Watering instructions
Keep well watered throughout the growing season
