Hi all! I'm new here, have always had good luck with peppers but I think I killed all of them and would really like some help! A month ago I got the bright idea to add epsom salt, slow release veggie fertilizer and dolamite to my peppers all at once(jalapeno, bell, serreno and cayenne) and to my tomatoes.. and they both look terrible.
From what I've read, it seems like the peppers dont like the Dolomite and the Tomatoes dont like the epsom salts, right?
SO how do I fix it.. it's been a month, all the leaves dropped off the peppers just leaving little sticks (which is so sad because they were beautiful and bountiful in August). I cut back all the "sticks" and now I think I'm just going to have to scrap all of them unless I can fix it. They grow in an earthbox and get plenty of sun. I've been watering at the root instead of the tube thinking it would help wash away the dolomite.
Have I ruined them or is there hope? This is my first year with these plants and I think the cold snap here may have finished them off.. Thanks in advance!
