It allows you to most efficiently distribute the use of water and saturate the soil with essential nutrients, thereby ensuring its fertility. Also, the correct alternation of crops helps to reduce the spread of diseases, pests and weed breeding.

Each vegetable treats weeds differently. So, most often the beds remain without weeds after cabbage, peas or potatoes, thanks to which it is easier to grow other crops in their place. Each culture has its own biological characteristics, therefore, to prevent the appearance of insects and weeds, it is worth alternating between them so that they are in their place no earlier than 4 years. This rule helps to prevent soil depletion and increase its fertility.

Then you can plant Bulgarian pepper?

Before planting, it must be remembered that it does not tolerate any kind of organic fertilizer at all.. Because of this, it is best to bring them into the soil, where it will grow a year before planting. Only after a while can the Bulgarian seedlings be planted at this place.

Therefore, when planting sweet pepper in the wells, special fertilizers should be added to the seedlings. It grows rather slowly. Due to the nature of the placement of the root system, it needs a lot of moisture. The roots are located in the upper layers of the soil, and therefore require frequent watering.

The most favorable neighbors of Bulgarian pepper

To obtain good yields, it is important not only to follow the rules of crop rotation, but also to choose the right neighbors in the beds. The right choice of neighboring crops will help to create natural safe protection for the Bulgarian pepper, protect it from the strong wind, scare away pests. The environment has the same great effect on vegetables as the soil in which they grow. Not properly seated neighbors are a source of infection by insects and other diseases, and can also simply act depressingly.

The best bean is considered the best neighbor for the sweet pepper. The fact is that the pests attacking the whole season with pepper do not tolerate its aroma at all, therefore, most likely they will not settle on it while such a “neighbor” is next to it. Another advantage of joint cultivation is the compatibility of these crops for nutrients in the soil. Legumes have a favorable effect on the soil, feeding it with minerals and nitrogen fertilizers, which is very important for pepper.
