One year I planted sweet corn in a square and planted the bell peppers inside the square and watered and watered. The peppers seemed to like the water and the shade. I would recommend a mulch to hold the moisture, but the peppers do like the water and the heat and the light shade.

My girfriend swears by epsoms salt to grow her peppers nice and big. This year I am going to try it.

I would say start with a small amount like a teaspoon spread around the perimeter of the plant but not on it or too close to it.

Good Luck and hope you have a great pepper crop this year.
