This can happen for many reasons, such as weed killer overspray (carried by the wind usually), over watering and improper acclimation when planted. This can also happen if you used a homemade mixture with soap in it that had bleach. When making homemade mixture, make sure that the soap you are using is not labeled as "anti-bacterial" as these contain bleach as their anti-bacterial component. Bleach kills plants.

Black leaves mean that they are dead and the plants will need to be replaced.
