Green Bell Peppers

Anonymous added on June 6, 2011 | Answered

I was wondering if you had any advice on growing bell pepper plants. I have the worst luck in that the plants are always stunted and produce puny, thin walled little peppers. I don't seem to have the same problem with jalepeno or banana peppers though. I live in an area with sandy soil; however, we use our own compost and a few years ago had black soil brought in for the garden. I have good luck planting many other vegetables but not these. Any suggestions?

This article will help with growing peppers:

I would have your soil tested. While you are adding compost and soil, it may still be deficient in one of the other macro or micro nutrients the plants need. If I had to guess, I would say it is likely potassium you are low on, but a soil test will tell you for sure.
