Gardening tip of the week: growing pretty peppers

Ornamental peppers look great in containers but are virtually inedible. Plant compact sweet pepper plants for decoration and eating. Attractive varieties include Marconi, Corno di Toro, Sweet Banana, Fish and Jimmy Nardello. There’s still time to start pepper plants from seed for planting out in six weeks, but for rapid germination and growth, use a heat mat.
