If you love hot peppers, you should try growing your own! The experience is exciting, and the results are tasty and fresh. And, it’s easy! All you need is potting, soil, water, and light. As long as you have a bit of space for a setup, you can get started any time of the year, even if it’s mid-winter! But step one: where can I buy pepper seeds online? Here are 5 online shops that sell a large variety of seeds – (hot or not).
1. RareSeeds (Baker Creek Heirloom)
What’s great about RareSeeds is the online interface. You can choose the color pepper, as well as the level of spiciness. With over 60 varieties of spicy peppers (and many non-spicy), you should be able to find what you’re looking for.
