Can Pepper Plants Be Planted Deep?

Peppers (Capsicum species) grow best from transplants set in warm ground in the spring after danger of frost has passed. Set the pepper transplants in the prepared bed at the same depth they grew in the seed-starting flat or pot. Peppers require full sun and moist, well-drained soil. Plant peppers 12 inches apart in rows.
