It sounds like they got some spray drift on them. Keep them well watered and give them some water that has a product called Super Thrive mixed into the water the next 5 to 6 times they need watering. The super thrive is not a fertilizer but rather a vitamin like tonic for them, goes a long way in helping them deal with all kinds of stress and shock. Let the company know they need to be careful of spray drift too!!
