New Pepper Plants

Why do I have holes in the leaves of my new pepper plants in the garden? I have lost one plant already. Also, how do I boost the growth of peppers in my garden? Years ago my father had the biggest pepper plants and he got cow manure from my mom’s brother right off of his farm. I don’t know of a farmer to do that, but I am going to look for one.
