splits on pepper plants and brown leaves

1994 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Jenni

I planted herbs and vegetables in the last two weeks. Our area had a bad thunderstorm with hail. I have noticed since then all of my pepper plants and a few of my herbs including cilantro have either splints in the leaves or brown around the edges. In addition, a few leaves on the pepper plants have holes with the leave part not gone (almost like a hole was punched in them)... I don't know what to do! The peppers look healthy and stems. I'm not sure if this is from too much rain, not enough sun, the use of Osmocote plant food, or a pest of some sort. The plants are all in pots with holes to drain and are located on a high deck. They receive sun (when there is sun most of the day). Any suggestions??? PLEASE HELP! I have 39 pots and want them to survive.

did the hail beat on your plants? if so that could be the reason for the splits and holes. if that is what caused it i think they should come back and be ok.
Yes. There was nothing I could have done to shield them. Since I've posted it has rained everyday and heavy with wind. I really hope they will do ok.
