The Q&A Archives: Green Peppers

Question: I've heard that putting a match stick in the ground next to the new green pepper plant is good. Is there anything to this? Or is this an Old Wives Tale??

Answer: Depends on what the matchstick is supposed to accomplish. I suppose there would be a tiny amount of sulfur in the match head, but that tiny amount wouldn't affect the plant in any way. It's probably just an Old Wive's Tale. <br><br>Why not try an experiment? Plant some with matchsticks and some without and see what happens!
