Q.Red Pepper Plants Not Flowered Yet

Zone arizona | maryeb added on September 7, 2012 | Answered

We built an elevated garden with organic soil with gypsum underneath the soil. We planted seeds in May/June time and all my other plants have come and gone. My pepper plants haven’t even flowered. My jalapenos are doing fine. What have I done wrong?

You can try overwintering your plants so that they are not a total loss (they likely will not flower this year). This article will explain more about that:
