Q.Bell Pepper Growing Season
We are thinking of growing bell peppers year round. We live in middle Georgia. We have an 8 x 10 plastic hot house and the plants are in boxes on a table, not in the ground. The winters are mild but we can install a heater with a fan. Can you tell us. . . will pepper plants live year round? Are we better off growing in the boxes as opposed to the ground?

Yes, in a greenhouse your plants will live year round. As for boxes vs ground, that's just a matter of opinion. I say go for it. You might find the following article helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/pepper/overwintering-peppers.htm
