Pepper and Chilli problems

I haven't had problems with my Peppers and Chillies before image

These are photos of 2 of my grafted peppers and i have a couple of Chillies that look the same - they are all different varieties image

    How often are you watering?

    I thought I was only watering when the plants needed it image

    Well, the pale green/yellow can mean nitrogen deficiency but I'm sure you're feeding them and the foliage is lush anyway. Let the mix dry out completely before watering again and see what happens.

    my peppers have given up... the leaves all looked curled up.. there were some flowers and teeny tiny peppers but they look all shrivelled up too... is this a bug problem please?

    Sounds drastic. Any chance of a photo?

    Peppers and chillies don't need a lot of feeding anyway. They're like tomatoes, much more likely to produce well if left to struggle a little. But to answer the question, once fruit is starting to ripen it's not drawing much from the plant and fertiliser is pretty much wasted.
