wilting peppers

Why are my green pepper plants wilting? I have three peppers growing in a raised bed garden that has a soil mixture made of 50% composted cow manure and 50% topsoil. All the other plants in the garden (tomatoes, eggplant and basil) are doing well. I planted both jalapeno peppers and green peppers and both have wilted away and died.
