Green/Red Peppers

Why do the small pepper buds always fall off either after the white flower or when bud is small, and they never grow. Am I watering too much and what individual brand fertilizer is best? I grow them next to my tomatoes. Does the tomato fertilizer hurt the pepper plants?

It sounds like it may be a pollination problem. Give your peppers a little shake every few days to help loosen up the pollen and also avoid using blanket pesticides, as these can kill both the good and bad bugs in the garden.

Whatever you are using on the tomatoes is good for the peppers. Tomatoes and peppers are from the same plant group and are related.
