We ate the last of our peppers last night. Went from green to a lovely orange. Will I be able to keep this plant over winter, and will it grow again?
It sits on the kitchen window cill and is only about a foot high.



you may be able to but reduce the watering so it wont 'rot'. I always grow fresh plants every year but worth a try.

Thanks for the advice, will try to keep it, but if not then it is a trip down to the garden centre again next spring.

They usually succumb to stem rot later on in winter. It's the lack of bright light despite the warmth indoors.
