Capsicum Annuum Grossum group 'Bell Boy' Plants

Lovely sweet peppers, also known as capsicums and sweet peppers, are best grown in a green house or polytunnel, although some success can be had by increasing them in a protected, warm position outside. Sow in the house from Feb to Apr and grow them in increasing hand bags or 21cm (8in) containers. Regularly wet down the floor of your green house or polytunnel to maintain moisture. 'Bell Boy' generates sweet, deep green fruits and veggies which turn red as they older.
