The Q&A Archives: orange pepper's buds

Question: the buds keep falling off my pepper plant. i used tomato fertilizer. added lime. what's the problem?

Answer: Lack of complete pollination can cause flowers to drop without developing into fruit. Sometimes little peppers will begin to form and drop off for the same reason. As long as your pepper plant is growing well and flowering, it will eventually produce peppers. You might try attracting insect to your garden by planting some flowering plants near your pepper plants. Good luck with your plants!
