Peat Pellet users, you might want to look... (pics)
I posted this last year and, since it's that time again, thought I'd post again.
If you use peat pellets and they have the "netting" around them, you should remove the netting prior to transplanting.
A few years ago, I had a pepper plant that was very disappointing. It didn't perform well at all - kinda dwarf and very low fruit production. When I pulled it in the Fall, I found out why.
This was a Jiffy-7 pellet.
Just an FYI -- Rick
