I'll try and post a picture later but both my chili pepper and sweet pepper plants are covered in brown / black spots. The spots are tiny dots but they cover pretty much all the plant. Anyone have any idea what it might be? Or how to get rid of it???

check and see if the spots are aphids as peppers are very attractive to aphids.

Checked but no sign of aphids. I noticed the pepper i have planted in the ground is thriving and another pepper in a larger container has no spots yet the rest have.

I've re-planted a few of them into fresh compost in bigger containers and hopefully they will pick up.

Thanks for the quick reply but anything else spring to mind as to what it could be?
