Re: Help! Plants damaged by hail storm!

Hi Chris,
With a little effort, all will be well. 
Here is a link to a page describing another growers experience, and  how he 
overcame it. There are some good before and after shots. (Joe P. we  look up to 
you for this work!)
Your plants will "repair themselves" They won't fix the damaged leaves.  
Rather, they will make new ones. It will take a little while, but in a couple  
weeks all will be good.
Trim and remove the worst of the damaged leaves. Later, as new leaves begin  
to take over, remove the partially damaged ones. That will be a bit of a  
judgement call. 
If you haven't fertilized in a while, add a high nitrogen fertilizer to  
promote new plant growth.
