Green Peppers no grow

I planted a bell pepper plant in a container and have only gotten two peppers, both small. I used a professional potting soil and water regularly. I cannot grow veggies in the ground and have to use containers. Is this possible with peppers and how do I get the one already planted to grow more peppers?

Peppers are good candidates for growing in containers. It's likely a matter of time and patience for more peppers to develop. Peppers need quite a bit of heat to grow well. With a cool, wet spring and early summer, their development has been delayed.
