Growing 'Redskin' F1 Peppers

When you water established plants, soak them and then let the compost all but dry out before the next dose. New plants, as always, need a bit more watering as they put down roots.

All peppers are happiest in a greenhouse, so if you plant them out in the garden (only after all risk of frost has passed) pick the sunniest, warmest place. The best soil is rich but still light and airy, with sharp drainage, so plenty of compost is a must.

In Your Garden Design

Don't just think pretty when considering where to plant peppers, think practical too for the types of companion plants you choose can really help deter pests and diseases. Tomatoes are natural companions and look superb alongside peppers, but make sure you rotate the planting space each year. As with cucumbers, nasturtiums and marigolds make wonderful flower companions and are edible too. (Nasturtium leaves can be used to make a good pesto and their flowers are particularly pretty in salads or used to dress dishes, even simple ones like scrambled eggs flaked with chives.) Good herbs to grow with them are basil, chives, parsley and dill, and veg wise you could put them alongside or interspersed with cucumber and aubergines too.
