growing green peppers
My green peppers are flowering, but there are four or five buds crammed in next to each other. Does nipping some of them off help to give more energy and space to the remaining ones?

It is not necessary to pinch out the blooms, as these will begin to fruit eventually; and if the plant signals an over abundance, they will normally drop on their own. However, if you want to pinch out one or two, it will not hurt the plant or fruiting of those remaining.
