When to Plant

Peppers are warm-season vegetables and cannot tolerate frost. In most climates, it is best to start pepper seeds indoors 8 to 10 weeks before the last spring frost date. This will give the plants time to mature before the weather gets too hot.

Pepper transplants can be planted outdoors 2 to 3 weeks after the last spring frost date, when the soil temperature has reached at least 65°F (18°C).

Where to Plant

Peppers need a sunny spot with at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight per day. They also need well-drained soil. If you have heavy clay soil, you can improve drainage by adding compost or sand.

How to Plant

To plant pepper seeds indoors, sow them 1/4 inch deep in a seed-starting mix. Keep the soil moist and warm, and the seeds should germinate within 1 to 2 weeks.

To plant pepper transplants outdoors, dig holes that are twice as wide as the root ball of the plant. Place the transplant in the hole and backfill with soil, tamping it down gently to remove any air pockets. Water the plant thoroughly.


Space pepper plants 18 to 24 inches apart in rows that are 2 to 3 feet apart. This will give the plants plenty of room to grow and produce fruit.


Peppers need regular watering, especially during hot weather. Aim to water the plants deeply once a week, or more often if the soil is dry to the touch.


Fertilize pepper plants every 2 weeks with a balanced fertilizer. You can also add compost or manure to the soil around the plants every few weeks.


Peppers can be harvested when they are green, but their flavor improves as they ripen to red, yellow, or orange. To harvest peppers, simply cut them from the plant with a sharp knife.

Tips for Growing Peppers

  • Mulch around pepper plants to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
  • Cage or stake tall pepper plants to support them.
  • Pick peppers regularly to encourage the plants to produce more fruit.
  • Protect pepper plants from pests and diseases by inspecting them regularly and taking steps to control any problems that arise.

With a little care and attention, you can enjoy a bountiful harvest of peppers from your garden.
