Keep the soil moist but not wet. Water when soil surface feels dry to the touch. Day temperatures of 65-75 degrees F. and night temperatures of 60-65 degrees F. are ideal. Peppers prefer full sun. Keeping peppers in a box will cause foliage to fall off.
Assorted vegetable varieties include: Green bell pepper, Banana pepper. Zucchini, Eggplant, Squash, assorted Tomato varieties and Cucumber. All of these prefer full sun and perform best in the milder months of the year (October-May). Water well until established and feed with a 20-20-20 liquid fertilizer.
Most of the tomatoes we grow in the 3 gallon size are a variety called "Better Bush". It has a nice bushy lower growing habit that makes it ideal for container growing or transplanting directly in the ground. We plant 3 plants per pot and reccomend not trying to divide them. A liquid feed or dry fertilizer can be used according to directions on label. If pest or disease problems occur, contact your local extension agent or garden center for reccomended control.
Double DIsposable Rack
Three gallon vegetable plants are for shipping through warehouse. They are placed on wood racks for shipping convenience.
Pillar Geraniums care requirements are the same as a traditional geranium, they prefer bright light in the cooler months in Florida (November-May). They will freeze but are relatively cold hardy and prefer a liquid feed fertilizer.
Assorted Trellises consist of Red Passion Flower, Jamaican Butterfly Vine, Confederate Jasmine, Mandevilla, Red Shrimp Plant and Mexican Flame Vine. All of these varieties will take full sun and will make a nice show on a large trellis or a fence. A well-balanced fertilizer such as a slow release 13-13-13 is recommended and once these plants are established, they are low maintenance. These will freeze and can be cut back to make a new show the following Spring.
