I want to grow vegetables, tomatoes, green peppers
Oliva on Jun 27, 2018These are all vegetables requiring a great deal of sun. You may have to settle for other vegetables with less heat and light requirements, such as celery, etc. Black plastic pinned to your garden soil will help trap hear, but won't compensate for sun. Could you reflect light off mirrors or foil, placed around your garden?Helpful Reply
Naomie Moore aka baileyanddaisey, Castaic CA on Jun 27, 2018Vegetables, especially tomatoes, require at least 6 hours of sun per day. If your yard does not have that, that is the reason they did not grow well. You did nothing wrong. Before buying any plants, read the tag to see what they require go flourish and be healthy. If you do not have those requirements, choose another plant. You can buy a grow light and try that way?Helpful Reply
