Garden Question about planting

Connie KruApril 21, 2012

I know that when I plant my bigger tomato plants that if I put the stem under ground that roots will grow-Are there other plants that would do the same (I really like to know if this is true for green peppers.

Don't know the answer but that's an excellent question! Glad you asked. I'll be very interested in hearing what folks with experience have to say.

Works for hardy fuchsias planted in the ground, too. I don't know about others. Usually, too deep = dead plants. I learned that the hard way in our wet fall - spring climate where rot is likely the cause. A long time ago my dad took one look at my window boxes & figured it out. Oh, and I thought I was teaching my preschool daughter something. Fortunately, our gardening lessons improved and she's grown & married now with her own gardens. She's teaching me since she's so good at seed starting & succession planting edibles.

I plant a lot more things high, then mulch around at least a few inches away from the main stems. More things live that way here.
