Sweet pepper dropping flowers

my sweet pepper keeps dropping its flowers. I am growing it in the conservatory which has about 4 hours sunlight and so is not too hot, if it is we open the doors anyway, and tomatoes and cucumbers in there thrive! I regularly water keep it moist, as with all the other plants, by watering regularly into the tray they sit in and this is also how I feed as well.

Any ideas as I have yet to a pepper growing on it although there are still lots of flowers which have not dropped.

    You need to water from the top and don't let them sit in water all the time, peppers,sweet or hot need to be kept on the dryish side image

    Thanks for that. I have allowed them to dry out and they have started producing fruit ?
