Urban Gardening for the Green Thumb Impaired



Ask me anything  
My Garden “Hotties”
Hot peppers are easy to grow. I got mine as a small plant at Home- Depot for .99 cents. I haven’t re-potted it yet but I will soon. It already has lots of little peppers.You can also start some seedlings on jiffy pots or peat pots filled with seed starting mix. After two weeks, plant them in the garden unless you are going to grow them in containers. Then you need to re-pot them. Remember to use rich soil. Make sure your peppers get full sun  and  have good drainage. I have read that if the peppers are starting to produce flower buds you should pinch them off for 1 to 2 weeks so that they grow better roots and leaves. I plan to grow more of them so I’ll do that to the next batch and blog about the difference.
