I’ve noticed my capsicum is very small this year same as last year. Has been in for about 6 wks and is only about 6-7 inches tall. Been regularly watered and fertilised?

Check the NPK of the fertiliser - seasol and similar things are not fertilisers. You would have to consider what the soil was like before you planted. Did you have another crop in before planting the caps. It would have used most of the nutrients up. What is the ph of the soil, the soil temp etc. Where I live we are having temps of 3+ degree above average and no rain. Too hot to grow most things I feel.
