They look as if they are wilting. It's been sunny the last 2 days and they have been getting watered every day when it's sunny. Other pots are fine
Can anyone help?

Try watering in the evening when it's cooler? It's often recommended not to water during the hottest part of the day/ full sun but I can't remember why grin Possibly something to do with leaf scorch/ plants not being able to take up the water when it's too hot outside?

They look like they're straight up wilting. You could move the pot somewhere that gets just a bit more shade during the hot days?

In Au, they say morning watering is best, but that's possibly because summer evenings can be very warm indeed.
