Growing Peppers In Containers: Here’s All You Need to Know

Growing peppers is a lot of fun, and it opens up a world of culinary possibilities. Here, we focus on growing peppers in containers so that you can still grow chillies no matter the space you have (or don’t have).

When you grow your own plants, you join other gardeners who want access chile varieties that aren’t readily available. In my neck of the woods, for example, I’m lucky to get habaneros.

And, even if you do have better access, these peppers can lack quality and heat (in my experience) when they’re not as fresh as they can be.

Peppers are somewhat tricky to grow. Please don’t make the same mistake I did and think you have a black thumb if it doesn’t work the first time.
