pepper plant

manchester, United Kingdom Gb

Hi all I have just bought myself a lovely green and red peppers plant and wondered if its best to plant it in a pot or actually in the garden? Does anyone know if they ever die off like most plants for a period of time? I'm really new to all of this so any sound advise will be really helpful.



I don't know what you mean by a pepper plant - do you mean a food plant, like a chili pepper or a capsicum pepper?

yes a food plant. A red yellow and green pepper plant.

if its a food plant, it'll be fine outside for the summer, but once it's produced it's fruit, it won't survive the winter. Either in a pot or the ground, whichever's easiest to keep watered.

~my daughter's dog has completely trashed her garden today and snapped off her large pepper plant level wilth the soil in it's pot~will it regrow?
Advice please?

Probably will, but may not produce fruit in time for the fruit to set fully. feed and water it to help it cope and fence it off!
