The Ideal Pepper Soil

It is unlikely that the perfect soil for growing peppers exists in the natural state anywhere in the country, so some soil treatment will undoubtedly be necessary. Generally speaking, the best pepper-growing soil has the following characteristics: a warm, full-sun location; well-drained loam or sandy loam high in organic material but with moderate fertility; a herbicide-free environment; little or no alkali; and a pH registering from 6.0 to 8.0 (ideally 6.7 to 7.3). For detailed instructions on how to prepare your soil and plot for your pepper garden, read the complete article here.
