HOW can I start plants from the peppers?? None of mine grow and I've tried several ways.

Thanks again for your kind and wonderful help!

I have had very good results planting them from seeds. I have found out over the years that if you soak the seed sin room temperature whole milk for 2-3 days, then plant them in moistened seed starting mix, every seed germinates within 10-20 days. I know it sounds weird but the potassium in the milk somehow encourages the seeds to sprout. They like warm temperatures so wait until April to start your seeds. Or, if you have a greenhouse and can keep them warm over the winter months, you can start them in September. Hope this information helps!
