In square foot gardening the plots are divided into one foot squares and depending on the size of the vegetable a set number of vegetables will be planted per square. In the case of green peppers, one plant is advised per square. This is a great way to learn about plant spacing, provide proper air circulation, allow for ease of weeding, and assure a good harvest.
