Question: How do you plant peppers?

Answer: Since peppers take a long time to mature, they are usually set out as transplants, either home grown from seed or purchased prestarted. Peppers are planted in the late spring after all danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed. They like a full sun location, average soil fertility, and soil that is evenly moist but well drained, meaning not sopping wet. Using several inches of organic mulch over the root area (not touching the stem though)helps keep the soil evenly moist and also keep down weeds. I hope this answers your question.
