    Moss rose, coleus and vinca do well in baskets and are salt tolerant. They should do well for this.

    Unfortunately, you are doing all you can right now. Just keep them watered to dilute the salt and hopefully this will reduce the damage. However, be careful not to overwater the plants as this can be just as detrimental.

    The salt itself should not, but it could cause stunted growth, which does sometimes reduce the robustness of the flavor of fruits and vegetables.
