What is staking?
Not sure where to start? I've put together a 34-page guide to help you grow an abundant harvest.
Drive your stake into the ground before transplanting, or a couple inches from the main stem soon after transplanting. Then, tether the main stem to the stake right above one of the nodes of the plant. Continue to tether the plant every few inches as it grows.
If you skipped staking your pepper plants earlier in the season and regret it, you can still support your plant. Position the stake 6" away from the main stem to avoid penetrating the roots, or opt for a cage instead.
The "green thumb" is a myth — with the right information, anyone can successfully grow peppers. Enjoy this free 34-page guide to help you grow an abundant harvest.
