Slugs & Snails Repel with strong scented plants like lavender & rosemary. Partly bury small containers so top of container is level with soil. Fill with beer at dusk. Slugs will be attracted by beer & drown. Empty in the morning & repeat. Use sand or gravel around the garden. Slugs can't move around without a moist surface. Caffeine kills them. Spread used grounds around plant's base or saturate with leftover coffee. 50/50 Ammonia & H2O & Squirted on them kills them
Growing peppers. Peppers hate nitrogen/commercial fertilizer. Wait until plants flower before fertilizing. Then spray leaves with 1 tsp of Epsom salt to 1qt of water (peppers need Magnesium to set fruit). Peppers also enjoy small amounts of potassium (wood ashes).
