Plant peppers in a sunny location in rich, well-drained soil. You can fertilize at the time of planting with a slow-release feed. Soil should be kept moist, but not wet. When peppers are firm, pick them so your plants will produce more! Peppers do well planted in large containers and can also be planted in the ground. Remember to stake larger plants to help prevent broken branches. We use non-gmo seeds to grow our pepper plants and we carry varieties that are Florida-friendly and heat-tolerant so you’re likely to have great success growing them! Don’t hesitate to pick a pepper or two!
