Over crowded?
« on: July 11, 2021, 11:18:07 am »
Did I over crowd my box?  Standard Earth Box with the following plants and the fertilizer strip in the middle. 

One side has: 1 Burpee red bell pepper plant, Candy Apple variety, 3 Burpee Cubanelle pepper plants, Long Tall Sally variety

The other side has 3 Blue Lake green bean plants

All 3 green bean plants have produced beans.  The red bell pepper plant is producing fruit but only 1 of the 3 Cubanelle plants have peppers growing.  The other 2 Cubanelles look healthy but not one single pepper is present.

In the past, I've mixed Blue Lake green bean plants (quantity 2), yellow bell peppers (quantity 1) and Cubanelle plants (quantity 2) in this same box and everything produced fruit.

Please advise!!  Thanks

In my opinion you're over crowding.
Why Google, when you have me?
