Q: Dear Dave:
It is one thing to have your soil tested but it is another to find good info on how much N,P,K you need for peppers. Do you have any idea where I may find this information for growing lots of peppers and a few tomatoes. My garlic and onions are still growing but they should be coming out soon.
A: Hello Jayson:
Both peppers and tomatoes need moderate amounts of nitrogen. Take care not to over-fertilize or you will get lots of foliage and no fruits. In most gardens, compost and small amounts of aged manure are enough, or you can fertilize with diluted 20-20-20 fertilizers such as Miracle Gro or Peters. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for dilution.
