Some people find it difficult to start bell pepper plants from seeds, but I find it really easy to start new bell pepper plants from kitchen scraps. All you have to do is cut your bell pepper in half lengthwise. Then scrape the seeds on to a paper towel or newspaper with your fingers or a spoon. If you want to store the seeds, allow the seeds to dry out in a cool, dry place before storing them in a cool, dry area. Otherwise, plant the seeds in soil.
I planted my red bell pepper seeds in my new Burpee 72-Cell Greenhouse Kit on March 15, and 10 days later red bell pepper seedlings are beginning to emerge from the soil! I planted one to two seeds about 1/4" deep in each cell.
I am really impressed with the Burpee 72-Cell Greenhouse Kit. It is easy to use, re-useable, mess-free, and really eliminates the guesswork in creating just the right environment for seeds to germinate. I only had to do the initial watering of the Burpee seed cubes, and the cells are still moist 10 days later. Just make sure all of the seed starting cubes are standing upright before pouring the hot water so they expand correctly.
