Leaves dropping off bell peppers
« on: August 10, 2009, 21:24 »
Im at a loos to work out why the leaves are all dropping off my bell peppers, the peppers are looking ok but look a bit odd on what has now become a stick. I dont water that much when I do I put a little tom feed in the water, any ideas?????

Did the leaves go yellow and then  drop off, or just fall off spontaneously?

they went a bit yellow then dropped, ive checked the pepper and it still seems to be well fixed to the main plant, the chilli's are dropping leaves as well, I'm wondering if its been too hot in the poly tunnel for them

If you are giving them tom ffod everytime you water, they might be overfed. Leave out the food for now and see if this helps.

I am sure others will have ideas too  :)

Not leaves, but Ive got fruiting flowers dropping off when the peppers are just formed, am I overwatering?  ???

I hardly water my chilli plants. Often they can be found to be dying for a drink before I give in :)
