Q.Container Peppers Are Dropping Leaves

Zone New Ringgold Pa. | onlybutch added on May 31, 2020 | Answered

Hi Folks, I bought a variety of Pepper plants because of the good luck I had last year with them, however this year much unlike last year I’m getting a different response from the pepper plants I’m growing in containers, and my guess is that I might have made the soil a bit too nitrogen heavy.. The leaves are dropping a bit and the plants a drooping a bit as well If you think I’m right about the nitrogen what is the best thing to do at this point, if you think its something else I’d appreciate some help

I would recommend testing your soil, as it will tell you exactly what is wrong with it. It could be anything from nutrient burn, to overwatering, to heat, and disease, or anything in between.

Here are some articles that will help:
