How to Grow Peppers & Eggplants
Being able to grow your own organic veggies from home, like peppers and eggplants, is very rewarding and very easy to do!
Items you’ll Need:
Raised bed or large grower container
E.B. Stone Organic Raised Bed Mix
E.B. Stone Sure Start Organic Fertilizer
E.B. Stone Organic Tomato & Vegetable Food
Step 1: Fill your raised bed or large grower container (5 gal or larger) with E.B. Stone Organic Raised Bed Mix
Step 2: Dig as many holes as needed, then gently lift your peppers, eggplants or other veggies out of their grower pots. Place the veggies in the raised bed or grower container and space your eggplants or peppers minimum 18” apart
Step 3: Sprinkle E.B. Stone Sure Start Organic Fertilizer on the roots to help reduce transplant shock
Step 4: Cover the roots with E.B. Stone Organic Raised Bed Mix and water thoroughly
A SUNNY LOCATION IS IMPORTANT FOR PEPPERS & EGGPLANTS
Make sure your raised beds or large grower containers are in a sunny location for peppers and eggplants. These veggies prefer full sun to promote a good harvest...and don't forget to add a stake for support as the plants begin to grow larger!
Note: *Be sure to stake your peppers and trellis your cucumbers for added support. Remember to feed with E.B. Stone Organic Tomato & Vegetable Food and water regularly throughout the growing season. We recommend using 100% E.B. Stone Organic Raised Bed Mix, which is ready to use right our of the bag.
