A few simple steps to get it right.

If you have a small home vegetable garden or want to start putting one together, there are several  plants  that are suitable for growing in pots.

Among these, there is also that of  pepper , a very popular summer vegetable and common in many kitchen preparations.

So let’s see what tips to put into practice to grow it correctly  in pots .

  1. Soil : One of the most important elements in growing vegetables, especially from seed, is soil. In the case of peppers, in particular, it is important that it is not hard and compact to allow the roots to develop as best as possible.
  2. Vase : it is advisable to use terracotta pots with holes in the bottom, to allow excess water to drain.
  3. Location : It is important to place the seeds correctly and at the right distance from each other to prevent the plants from having little space to grow.
  4. How to plant : after placing the seeds, a fundamental step is to cover them correctly. Just a light layer of soil that covers them but at the same time allows them to germinate. After that, the floor surface should be wet.
  5. Location  : Once planted, the seeds must be positioned correctly. The best place is a bright and well-ventilated place, where, however, there is no excessive direct light as this could dry out the soil very quickly.
