Start indoors a month before last frost date. Transplant into warm soil once weather is settled and reliably warm. Keep moisture even (mulch helps) and make sure soil has adequate calcium to prevent blossom end rot. Pick peppers promptly to keep plant producing. Most plants are self-pollinating, so seed can be saved easily.
