This keeps happening to my peppers. I bought three of them from my local farmer's market about three weeks ago and they were at least 7" tall and healthy.
It's frustrating because the plants looked healthy when planted but then the leaves curled and the plant growth "stunted" soon afterwards. All the growth (peppers buds) gets bunched up together at the top of the plant and the peppers never really develop. They get maybe 3" long and end up getting sun scald.
Should I be spraying as soon as I plant, given my dismal performance this spring and (early) fall? And with what? I've read that aphids and other plant suckers can be to blame...if this in fact mosaic. Anyway, thanks for any advice!!!
