Pepper Fertilizer: How And When To Fertilize Peppers


By Kathleen Mierzejewski


usually require a season that is a little longer than other plants. They tend to grow slowly when the temperatures are cooler, and quicker when the temperatures are higher. Because of this, fertilizing pepper plants is essential to their health. But this can leave a gardener with many questions like “What is the best fertilizer for pepper plants?” and “When do you fertilize peppers?”

Best Time to Fertilize Peppers

Fertilizing pepper plants is pretty simple. Fertilizing pepper plants is usually first done when you first transplant the pepper plants that you buy from the garden center or grow in the house.

You can fertilize peppers again once you see dime-size fruits. Be very cautious with this particular application. If you fertilize peppers with too much nitrogen, you can kill the plants.


Be sure to water frequently once you start to fertilize peppers so the ground doesn’t become too concentrated with fertilizer.

What is the Best Fertilizer for Pepper Plants

Pepper fertilizer applications of 5-10-10

can be used. For every 100 square feet, you want to use about three pounds. When you first plant the pepper plants, you will want to use this pepper fertilizer specifically before you put the plants into the ground. And then once fruit appears, you can use it again.

You can also use

well rotted manure


Compost for Fertilizing

pepper plants.

These organic fertilizers

will release more slowly into the soil and will give a longer run of nutrients to your pepper plants.

Of course, when it comes to fertilizing pepper plants, the best kind of fertilizer really depends on your soil. If you want to be completely accurate with your pepper fertilizer, you should have a soil test done to find specific deficiencies.
