Is it necessary to use Mel's mix? Has anyone had luck with just compost?

Thanks!

Saving Seeds from Heirloom Peppers

posted by: Gertrude1 on 02.05.2014 at 07:39 am in Hot Pepper Forum

I am concerned about saving seeds from heirloom peppers. I've read that if you want to save seeds you must plant only one type of pepper per 50 feet. Does anyone have any advice?

Thanks,

I too am concerned about cross-pollination. Can I plant Scropion peppers and Haberno in the same garden and successfully save seeds?

Thanks!

Saving Heirloom Tomato seeds

posted by: Gertrude1 on 02.05.2014 at 07:08 am in Growing Tomatoes Forum

I've read that if you want to save heirloom tomato seeds you must plant specific tomatoes ten feet away from other specific tomatoes. An example would be planting Cherokee Purple ten feet from Black cherry. Does anyone have any thoughts on whether this is a good rule of thumb.

Thanks!
