Cultivating peppers involves employing specific techniques to ensure a bountiful harvest from your small kitchen garden. To consistently yield peppers from your seedlings, it’s crucial to be aware that these vegetables do not thrive in acidic soil.

Therefore, adjusting the soil’s pH to be more alkaline is essential, preferably in the autumn. However, it’s never too late to create a mixture that fosters optimal pepper growth, and we’ll guide you through the process.


  • 1 liter of organic liquid fertilizer
  • 9 liters of water
  • A 200-250 ml glass filled with chalk fragments, available from agricultural and construction stores

Preparation and Usage:

  1. Pour the 9 liters of water into a watering can.
  2. Add the chalk fragments from the glass and 1 liter of organic liquid fertilizer, thoroughly mixing the solution.
  3. Apply one liter of this mixture to the base of the previously watered pepper plants, as the alkaline effect is more effective on moist soil.
  4. Within a few days, you’ll observe an improvement in the plants’ condition.
  5. If your garden soil remains highly acidic, repeat this method every 7-10 days.
