Overwintered Peppers, Thinking Ahead.

By DaisyRyder

Last year I dug up my pepper plants and overwintered them in a greenhouse. I like being the first among my garden neighbors to have big healthy tomatoes and peppers in the garden AND I can also say I started them from seed. I plan on overwintering these peppers again, but there has to be an easier way -- a way that can keep them happy all spring and summer but doesn't hurt my back in fall. So I had an idea and I'm feeling pretty positive about it.

I find even in the tropics that the max viable life of my pepper plants is about 2 1/2 years-with best production in the second year
After that they just dont produce as well any more
You may run up against this when overwintering as well
My best production method is to keep plants a max of 2 years and replace anew with seed started plants
