Q.Can eggplant, capsicum & chili be planted in a dwarf and young citrus bed ?

Zone Perth Western Australia | Anonymous added on October 11, 2020 | Answered

I planted a young lime, yuzu & finger lime next to an established dwarf lemon leaving ample room for the growth of each, so can I also plant capsicum, eggplants & chili amongst them being that these will be regarded as annuals & not a problem to the citrus after one season ?

Your greatest consideration will be the use of resources, such as water and soil nutrients. You don't want to rob your young trees of what they need, but I can't imagine any of these plants actually causing a problem for them.
