Remedy for an Overwatered Pepper Plant

One of my bell pepper plants got too much water from all the rain and now it's wilted. Will it come back or what can I do? They are in five gallon buckets and yes they have holes in them.

Sounds like it might be blight, which is a fungal infection that can spread quickly when the weather is wet. Remove the affected leaves from the garden and treat with a fungicide. That might not save them, but it is worth a try.

Container plants get starved for nutrition as well. They cannot reach out to area soil to get what they need. I did container tomatoes and found I had to add iron each week.
