Sulphur and Sweet Peppers
Posted by Tony Massara from PA on 2002-05-28 22:06:02

Several gardeners in my family have planted a pack of matches with each sweet pepper to provide sulphur. Is there any reason to believe this works?

    My family use to use the match book trick too. I now use a tablespoon of epsom salt in with my peppers when I plant them. Epsom salt is Magnesium Sulfate. It does get the peppers off to a good start and makes their stems nice and sturdy. Enjoy your peppers!
