Leaf scorch in April!

wpid-20150410_075840.jpgThere was me worrying about the late frosts, and totally forgot about the effect a hot April can have on your crops!

I left my heated propagator on during a hot day, and by the time I got to the plants in the evening they had wilted. I thought I had lost all the peppers and chillies, and the aubergine. Fortunately, after a good watering they just about recovered – however, you can see quite clearly how scorched their leaves are.

The propagator lid has now been removed, and switched off as we have this unseasonably warm April weather. The plants are loving it, and hopefully these will make a full recovery.
