I posted this in the Vegetable forum several days ago, but have received no response. I seem to have better luck in this forum Big Grin

I have several pepper plants in my garden. So far, I have lost two. The first just wilted and died for no apparent reason, although, I suspect a mole may have been the cause. The other has all of it's leaves stripped off. I noticed this yesterday. A few of the leaves where laying on the ground around the plant as if they had been clipped off with scissors. I went out this morning and the rest of the leaves have been stripped and are laying under the plant. I don't see anything on the plant or any nearby plants and none of the leaves have any bites out of them.

Any ideas?

I don't know why the Vegetables forum doesn't get enough love, but it should. Your thread is here:

The thread "Something is killing my peppers" in Vegetables and Fruit forum

I would request replies go there to encourage and help others who visit that forum. Smiling Thanks for the pointer, Tom.
