Sweet peppers
« on: June 29, 2010, 09:44:05 pm »
Hi

I have 3 sweet peppers in a plastic coldframe - which are getting nicely scorched by the sun right now.  :)  Its growing well, but I cant see any flowers. Has anyone got any flowers or peppers showing yet? Should I be pollinating it in some way? I have been opening the cover on the super hot days, but not seen many insects about to assist!  :(

bees should do it for you - as long as they can get in of course.  also if oyu can put something in with them that has flowers it will encourage the bees in too

  If there are no flowers you can't pollinate anything.....................  You'll just have to wait and hope it produces some.
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

ours started flowering about 4 weeks ago and we have 3 or 4 peppers about the size of a golf ball coming along. Hope you get something soon! (we pollinate them once they flower!)
