Green bell peppers

Post by T. D. Inouy » Sun, 06 Jun 1999 04:00:00



Our pepper plants have been transplanted over five weeks ago and they are
still very small.  Is there a type of plant food just for pepper plants.
Also, we are using VF11 food to feed them now.  VF11 seems to be working
very well with our eggplants and tomatoes.  Any recommendations would be
greatly appreciated.

You didn't say where you are located, or what your weather has been
like.

Peppers like it hot (no pun intended). If you planted a little early,
when the nights still get into the 40s or 50s, they will be off to a
slow start. Be patient.

Assuming you are having mild overnight temperatures, are providing adequate
water, and the plants show no sign of disease:  TTBOMK, there is no special
plant food for peppers.  A double side dressing with a handful of 5-10-10 has
always given me good results.

Maybe the drainage is poorer or soil is sour where you have the peppers.  Have
other things grown well there in the past?  Sometimes it does seem that some
plants just don/t like certain parts of the Garden for some unknown reason.
You could still transplant them elsewhere to see if they/d do better, although
the shock will delay their fruiting some more.  If you do move them, ensure
that you take a healthy root ball with the plant to its new location.

Thank you.  The evenings have been unseasonably cool, but peppers grew very
well in this same area three years ago, before I rotated them to this area
again.

I will continue to nurse them and I hope they continue to stay green and
healthy looking.  They are just a little small for my liking.

 I've never staked mine, no need.

No, I have never seen any bell peppers staked.  Are yours tall enough to need
it?
