Q.Pepper plants wilted right after going in ground

Zone Dale, TX Zone 9 | Cedarblues added on April 1, 2016 | Answered

I was just reading your article about fungal wilt. Will this affect all peppers? My banana and jalapeno peppers look fine but the green peppers are very wilted and they are all planted beside each other. Is there such a thing as over watering them causing wilt? I have been very diligent about watering cause I planted some seeds too. I spent a lot of money putting in this garden! Please help me!!

Hardening off the small seedlings is an important step when transferring to the garden.
The small seedlings need time to adjust to the light and temperature changes from going to an indoor location to the the garden.
Here is a link that will help you with this process.


If you have all ready placed them in the garden, you can give them some shelter from the sun, wind and make sure they are correctly watered.
Milk jugs that are cut on the top and bottom can be place around them.
