Bell Pepper Survivor?

Bell Pepper Survivor?

Post  No_Such_Reality on 4/1/2017, 6:31 pm

I have a pair of bell peppers in my SFG.  Last fall/winter, I pruned them back to basically a stump with a few leaves here and there.  Over winter, with no killing frost, they kind of sat dormant.  The few leaves they did produced seemed to keep the slugs fed.

So my question, they're still there.  No strong looking shoots, but they're just now coming out of the winter shadow of the orange tree.  Will they spring back and send up a strong column or should I rip it out, plant something else and put a bell pepper in another square?

Photos are better, glad I went to look, the 2nd one has a bunch of flower buds on it.  Will those grow back into a nice tall pepper plant or doomed to just be a straggly bush?






Apologies for those being rotated  Servimg isn't the friendliest once it decides to rotate an image.

I think it is exciting when something over winters.  If you can spare a square, I suggest you continue with the great pepper experiment.  I had a few peppers that were in pots and they produced the second summer.

Isn't that part of gardening, experimenting?

peppers are  perennials in warmers climates.  I think you will get a bigger plant and peppers.

I'll let them run, saves me digging them out to transplant store bought.
