Earthbox says 6 peppers per EB. I'm trying to figure how many of my seedlings I can keep and how many I have to give away. In your experience, how many are good per EB? I have mostly sweet peppers, Jimmy Nardello's, Tequila, Corno di Toro Yellow, Lipstick, and Jalapeno.
I've planted 4 per box to give the peppers more room; but in one EB I put one eggplant and one pepper also, as you can only plant 2 eggplants per EB. I'm finding out also that even 3 cabbages are too many in EBs.
I do 6 per EB, as well, last year I planted 1 eggplant in each Bloommaster basket (didn't really utilize the side holes, oh well...) & they were super! When I tried to dig them out /break them off in Oct., they resprouted from the stems...
This year, I have 6 peppers in 1 EB & I think I'm going to try 2 peppers in the top stack of an agro-tower...
Thistle5: Wow you planted an eggplant in a bloommaster and it took off that is simply amazing. I have planted cucumbers in mine this year, and had thought about the basket peppers; but, thought better of it. Jungle Grow has a new potting mix out by the way, it's called Jungle Grow For Professional Growers for hanging planters. I am now buying and using that instead of the Jungle Grow For Professional Growers for containers and/or coconut coir. It is very light and works in the EBs too. I still add perlite though to my bloommaster.
