Help! pepper growing problems!


I need some advice and help!

This is the first time I have grown peppers, they are in a grow bag in a greenhouse.

They were ok now the leaves have curled up, are going slightly yellow and some have just started to fall off!


what is wrong and what can I do to save them?

    The compost in the growbags looks very wet.  Peppers don't like their roots too damp so I would stop watering until the surface of the compost goes dry and keep fingers crossed.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    I'll second that.
    They look ok - if they're in a drafty position that may not help.
    Are you feeding them? or does the growbag take care of that, as now you have flowers they'll need food

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    Have you been feeding them since you got the flowers?

    Have a look on the undersides of the leaves, you may have white fly or similar pests. They shouldn't be starved already, not at that size. Looking at the way the new top leaves are coming out crinkled I'd say more pest than starved.
