Question: 

When can I plant peppers in my garden?

Answer: 

Peppers are a warm-season crop.  Plant peppers in the garden after the danger of frost is past.  In central Iowa, peppers can be planted in mid-May.  Gardeners in southern Iowa can plant one week earlier, while those in northern counties should wait an extra week.  The last practical date for planting peppers is approximately June 20.
