If you put pepper plants too close to the tomatoes, the peppers will not get enough sun and they will waste all their energy growing really tall to try and reach the sunlight instead of growing peppers. I've made that mistake a couple times. One year, I had yellow pepper plants that were 5 feet tall and very little peppers. They need to be at least 5 feet away from tomato plants and on the south side so they are not shaded.

Can I plant a bell pepper and cherry tomato plant together in the same container? It is a very large container that holds about 2 cu ft of soil. Thank you.

Hardiness Zone: 10b

Yes! I did it last summer. I did not get very many tomatoes and peppers though. I fed the tomato and green pepper plants a weak solution of Miracle Grow for tomatoes every week. I believe my problem was more the heat (south Florida) than nutrients.

I did it last summer, too. I used a big plastic hanging pot, cut out the center of the bottom, planted the tomato upside down (hanging), and 2 pepper plants coming out the top. Hung it from the pergola. Got veggies from all the plants. I live in a townhouse with limited growing space and this was a excellent solution for me.
