Brown Leaves on Red Pepper Plant

Flowers2 added on July 11, 2014 | Answered

Yesterday I noticed 2 of my container grown pepper plants have brown all over them. One of the plants kind of shriveled up and when I watered it some of the leaves fell off. I suspect they are not doing well in the hot sun we are having in the Northwest. Maybe I just need to cover them? I don't know if it is too late, though, to try to save them.
