Caring for Peanuts

Water and feeding. Peanuts prefer regular, even watering. Keep the soil moist until the plants begin to flower, then waterless. Once plants are established, allow the soil to dry between waterings. Empty pods, sometimes called “blind” pods, are the result of too much rain or humidity at flowering time. Prepare planting beds with aged compost peanuts, like other legumes, supply their own nitrogen.

Care. Mulch around peanuts to keep the soil surface from crusting and becoming hard this will allow pegs to penetrate the soil. Keep the planting beds weed-free and cultivate lightly to keep the soil loose. Mulching around peanuts will make harvesting easier.

Pests. Peanuts have no other serious pest problems. Fence rodents out of the garden.

Diseases. Peanuts have no serious disease problems.
