What happens if you plant peppers too close together?

Are these peppers planted too close together??

Can you plant peppers together?

Planting Peppers Close Together

It is fine to plant sweet and hot peppers close together, even intermingled in a raised bed or in the same row in your garden. ... Pepper plants are smaller and more compact than most tomatoes, so they can be planted about 18 to 24 inches apart in the ground.

What can you not plant next to Peppers?

Peppers – Pepper plants make good neighbours for asparagus, basil, carrots, cucumbers, eggplant, endive, oregano, parsley, rosemary, squash, Swiss chard, and tomatoes. Never plant them next to beans, Brassicas, or fennel.

Can you grow serrano peppers from store bought peppers?
