I have supplied an easy graphic for you on 10 Tips for Growing Peppers that you can keep handy so you are guaranteed those delicious sweet and spicy summer peppers all season long.

#1 Plant where they will get at least 10 hours of direct sunlight.

#2 Leave about 18-20” space between each plant to allow for air to circulate. Hot Pepper cultivars need less room in between plants than sweeter varieties.

#3 Stake or cage taller varieties so that the stems do not break in strong winds or due to a heavy fruit load.

#4 Make sure your pepper plants receive at least an inch of water a week. Gallon of water daily during extreme heat and drought. Keeping soil evenly moist for good growth.

#5 Peppers need well draining soil that is rich and loamy, but avoid too much nitrogen in the soil.

#6 Add about 1” of organic mulch around base of plant to help retain soil moisture and keep soil temperatures nice and warm.
