Pepper, Aubergine Plants

Anonymous added on July 5, 2011 | Answered

My aubergine plant, which has been in the garden, and pepper plant, which is in the greenhouse, have developed blackened leaves, which then drop off. I initially thought it was black fly, so I sprayed the affected plants with an insecticide. This condition has now spread to a chili plant in the greenhouse. Please help.
