I'm getting some spring fever and thinking about my garden for this year. I
have limited space (three 4x8 raised beds) and like to have variety.
I like to grow peppers and in the past have planted varieties in groups of 6
plants. This yields more peppers than I need so I'd like to reduce the
number of plants for each type.
From my research, it looks like peppers in general both self pollinate and
cross pollinate. If I planted my peppers in groups of 3, should I still
expect good yields from each plant? Is there a rule of thumb for how many
plants are the minimum for good pollination?
