Pepper/Tomatos Loosing leaves

Post  aspiegardner on 6/8/2010, 10:16 am

put the peppers and tomatos out about 13 days ago, good mel's mix. The mr. stripey and the bigger tomatos are all growing no flowers or tomatos yet. The smaller cherry and lemon tomato varietys seem to have died they are just a stem with shriveled or no leaves left.

The peppers are the same one or two have leaves most don't. The ones planted by seed are not even sprouting yet.

Corn/cucumber/lettuce/radish are doing great same with the herbs.

carrots and celery starting to sprout.

I just don't know what to do or if I need to just try to go find new plants and start over.

I make sure the boxes are well watered.

We are in NE CO believe that's zone 5b

I am having a similar issue with one of my pepper plants. Although not as badly as you seem to be. I'm sorry to hear that you are having so much trouble. I'm sure there is someone here that could help. Is there any way you could post some pictures? That would definitely help with a diagnosis.

Have you pulled any of the dead plants and looked at the roots? You may have had some kind of root rot.

I did pull up the dead plants but they looked fine. After pulling the dead, sprinkling on epsom salt some are growing again.

Tomatos doing much better than the peppers still.

I am in 5b, South Central Indiana. I planted small pepper plants quite a while ago. They stayed small and did not flower until this week. They seemed to be dormant, but just woke up. Hopefully the same will happen for yours
