Is it too early
I planted several different species of hot peppers about three weeks into January. I did this because I was trying to start some Ghost peppers and they need a lot of head start in my area (South Central Wisconsin). Well the Ghosts are doing great but I think I may be too early on the others. My Banana Peppers look like they are already forming buds. If they do flower, can I try to manually pollinate them and then transplant them in about 7 or 8 weeks when it will be safe to get them outside? Or would I be wasting my time. I am afraid some of my other varieties might start budding out soon too. (Long red Slim, Charleston and Habanero). This is my first year doing the seed thing so I hope someone else with a little more expertise can lend a little advice.
