Take a look at the pepper growing advice on my web site -
This is for outdoor growing, but also should work well in a high
tunnel. I follow John Jeavons' recommendations, which favor close
spacing and bio-intensive growing methods.
BTW, an interesting use for my greenhouse has been to grow lettuces and
greens up on a table. Lots and lots of production - good for the
restaurant trade - but less bending over and no digging -
