Hi Shaun,

This is possibly a result of aphids or of cool temperatures.

1st, check under the leaves to see if there are any tiny green aphids, if there are you need to wash them off with normal or soapy water, then look into using a product that will give them longer term protection.

2nd, I am guessing it has been colder  the last few days like it has been here, try to get them into as much sunshine and warmth as is possible, without putting them directly in front of a heater, inside a sunny window is great, they really hate being cold.

3rd, if none of the above seem to be the problem I would repot them into larger pots with any good grade of potting mix and water them in with half strength Seasol, then I would feed them weekly with seasol one week and another fertilizer the second week, I use PowerFeed that comes in a twin pack with Seasol but you can use any fertilizer that is normally used on Vegetables, give them as much natural sunshine as possible and they should pick up again.

I generally water them every 2 or 3 days this time of year, if they are in a larger pot it doesnt hurt to let them dry out a bit sometimes, even if they start to wilt from being dry they will recover in a couple of hours.

Please let me know how they are going, chillies are pretty tough plants so I think they have a good chance of recovery.

Keep in touch, via Ebay or our website is best as there is some more growing information on the site

Cheers, Al
