A little gardening advice from my Dad.
- water and FEED regularly
- "feeding" could be Miracle Gro or some other fertilizer placed on top of the soil or mixed with water and sprayed on the plants.
- when plant sets blossoms, spray new blossoms with a solution of:
- 1 teaspoon epsom salts
- dissolved in a quart of warm water
- mixed in a spray bottle
- spray the top side and the under side of the green leaves too.
- spray every two weeks
The above will supply the peppers with magnesium, which the peppers crave.
original FB message from DD after she spoke to Dad on Jun 27, 2014:
News from your dad about our pepper plants... 1) water and FEED regularly. 2) when plant sets blossoms, spray with a solution of 1teaspoon epsom salts dissolved in a quart of warm water, mixed in a spray bottle. Spray new blossoms. 3) spray every two weeks. Mr. JL Master Gardener [S] strikes again!
I think this came from an old Woman's Day magazine.
