garden tip

Pepper plants should be staked while young to avoid flopping later. A thin, 4- or 5-foot wooden stake will do the job, pushed into the soil about four inches from the plant’s main stem. A small, metal cage sold for tomatoes will work, too. Pinch back stems on young plants to promote fullness.
