It seems everything is either not germinating or very slow to do so, only a few managing to get going, a lot smaller than they should be, or flowers but no pods etc as yet. Just stick it out and see what happens when the weather changes.
I love cooking with wine, and sometimes I even add food!

Obviously none are ripe yet, but mine look to be doing better than the tomatoes this year. So no complaints from me  ;)
They always do take a long while to get going though and it is only just July, they've got a lot of growing to do yet.

Probably not what you want to hear but mine is doing fine too. I've already taken 3 green peppers from one plant with quite a few more forming plus flowers. Hebar is also doing well (it's normally a good performer for me), if you want an alternative green pepper for next year.

The sweet peppers here are a shade behind the chillies even though they were planted at the same time, but they are setting fruit and looking well. They are Marconi Long Red and King Seeds Mixed Sweet Peppers, one of which is obviously purple
