Containter Peppers

Postby Sbelley » Sep 12, 2008 3:50 pm

Hello everyone,
I'm starting my indoor garden for the winter, I have significant additional lighting and I'm experienced growing tomatoes, flowers, and herbs indoors (and out of season), but I've never grown peppers indoors. I know peppers like sandier soil but...

What kind of soil should I buy to do peppers organically *or all natural*?
Can I use the same soil as my tomatoes?

Thanks in advance :D

I have found that the best soil for vegetables in containers is a Pro-mix with the addition of african violet soil. The lightness of the medium does not harden or strangle the roots of plants. I usually use 2/3 pro-mix to 1/3 soil. Hope this helps ya

I used the same soil for my peppers as I did my tomatoes in my outdoors panters. They turned out just fine.
