Oh poor you this looks like cold shock to me have you moved them from a warmer place? or is it lack of water?

Looks like it needs watering ... baskets get very dry in no time at all ...

I forgeot to say you started off so well, But they do need watering at least once every day, I do mine twice a day when its hot, also if the compost is dry the water mostly runs off so I try always to avoid mine drying out then water soaks in and the water retention gel swells, I also feed them every week.

I hope the flowers in your basket perked up after more watering.
They dry out so quickly, especially in the sunshine !
