Re: Starting peppers indoors

In northern Pa we start the toward the end of February. Then we water them with the Epsom salt mixture and continue this after we plant.

Re: Starting peppers indoors

I will start my peppers in about 2 weeks and my tomatoes 2-3 weeks later.

Why Epsom Salt? And how much?

It appears they like the magnesium in it. Last year at transplant I put 4 match sticks head down in the ground around each plant (for sulpher) and applied epsom salt disolved in water several times during the growing season. I can't attest that strategy was 100% responsible, but I got by far the most, biggest, and fleshiest peppers I ever grew in my life.

Re: Starting peppers indoors

Use one tablespoon of Epsom salts to one gallon of water. You will see a larger harvest of peppers. The East Coast is low on magnesium and the Epsom Salts will provide that.
