Green peppers prefer a lot of sunlight and warm, moist ground. If you’re using seed, put it under cover eight weeks before the last expected frost in your area, and then transplant it.

How To Grow Green Pepper
The steps below are the best way to cultivate green peppers
Step 1: Before planting green peppers, thoroughly loosen the soil. Then, using a rake, mix in fertilizer, manure, or compost. Add a dressing of 2:3:2 organic fertilizer for the best results. For every 1m2 of manure or compost, use four handfuls or one handful of 2:3:2.
Draw the furrows and ridges at least one meter apart. Along the ridges that border the water, space the seedlings at least 40 cm apart. The plants will stay upright with stakes.
Step 2: Three weeks after the last frost, plant your seedlings. Draw the furrows and ridges at least one meter apart. Along the waterline on the ridges, plant the seedlings at least 40 cm apart (not the top).
Step 3: Never water peppers; always water the roots. You can accomplish this by utilizing drip or flood irrigation. The peppers will perish if they are very damp. Mulch thickly as well.
Step 4: To keep the growing plants erect, tie them to stakes.
Step 5. Fertilize frequently. Use chicken manure if you’re utilizing manure at all. Feed peppers with a balanced organic fertilizer like 3:1:5 every four weeks once they begin to blossom. Instead of the fruit growing, too much nitrogen causes the leaves to expand.
Step 6: Regularly weed your garden and use chemical or natural pest control methods. Fruit flies can be an issue, even though green peppers are generally free of pests and diseases. Spray the leaves with soapy water if aphids are to blame for the wrinkling and distortion.
Step 7: About 11 weeks after transplanting, green peppers will begin to bear fruit. Cut fruit off with a sharp knife as soon as it is large enough to be picked. Fruit should not be left on the vines for an excessive amount of time as this will prevent flowering. Peppers will continue to yield fruit until the start of winter.
