My three pepper plants have started to wilt. it has been dry and hot here, but we had rain 7-10 days ago. Any suggestions?
With the hot weather we have had recently pepper plants like most garden vegetables need additional and consistent watering. Anytime temperatures are in the upper 80’s to 90’s they will typically need to be watered every 3-4 days. Make sure you water deeply and do your best to water at the base of the plant while not getting any water on the leaves. A soaker hose is a great way to administer water to all garden plants in a slow steady manner. In addition; watering in the early morning is best for all plants in order to reduce the chances of disease. Good luck with your pepper plants.
