Pruning Your Pepper Plants

Pruning your pepper plants is very easy to do and only requires a sharp pair of pruning shears. You will want to remove any diseased or damaged leaves. If they look brown or have brown spots, or look like they’ve been chewed up by insects, they need to go.

Remember to only remove as much dead material as necessary, but leave the living and healthy part of your plant alone. Cut away bad leaves close to the stem. There should not really be that much to cut away at any one time on any single plant.

By trimming the dead material away, you are making sure to keep your plants healthier by removing and disposing of any sources of disease that might infect your garden vegetables before they can spread any further. To learn about proper pruning technique, see the video here.
