Planting Bell Peppers and Tomatoes Together

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.

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 read that tomatoes stop bearing when the temps are above 70 degrees F. Last year in the Atlanta area, the hot summer temps came so early, that my tomatoes didn't have any fruit. I solved this by hand pollinating my tomatoes. I used a small, fine makeup brush and gently brushed the flowers with the brush. Shortly after the first time, my tomatoes started setting fruit! I had to do this all summer just to have any tomatoes. I'm doing this again this year, so I don't have this happen again. I hope this is helpful!!

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.
