Peppers are so popular with DTB gardeners – it seems everyone loves them. The plants are easy to manage, requiring no staking or side-shooting.
The collection consists of 2 plants in 9cm pots., 1 of each variety:
A big cropping sweet pepper with thick-walled fruits which are 15-18cm long. They ripen from green to red and are great fresh or for stuffing.
If you love the flavour of tobasco sauce, then this variety is the one for you! Very high yielding, plants produce healthy crops of bright green and red fruits through summer. Perfect for container growing and not too vigorous.
Grafted vegetable plants offer us gardeners’ plants which have greater vigour and much more resistance to soil borne pests and diseases, such as nematodes – particularly useful if you grow in the greenhouse border soil each year, where crop rotation is somewhat limited. The grafting process brings together the best attributes of two different plants – a species rootstock and a hybrid variety. The hybrid variety is grafted to the species rootstock to produce plants which are strong and vigorous, which in turn, produce more fruits and heavier yields. Although traditionally greenhouse grown, we have found, over the last few years, that plants, if placed in a warm and sunny position, will also crop well outside too – even more reason to grow them!
Today, almost all commercial production of cucumbers, capsicums and tomatoes, in Europe, is done using grafted plants – you too can do what the professionals do! Some varieties could reach 3m in height given the space!
Supplied as well established plants in 9cm pots. Please note – do not remove the plastic grafting clip. It will fall off naturally as the plant grows.
All grafted vegetable plants will be despatched from mid-May.
