I am guessing perhaps the ones outside are drying out in the reflected (dry) heat of the walls.
it's about humidity and warmth.
The ones I lost were blasted by the 40C wind ...my fault because I did not have time to move them under trees.
The ones that do not seem to be doing well will recover nicely in dappled shade under trees or bushes ...don't forget with seedlings just like tomatoes you can re pot them up to the cot leaf scars ...thus pushing them into better growth as they make extra roots.

The Magnolia I think I may have lost has crispy dried leaves ...it's the Exmouth (grandiflora )
The sun got through to it because the hail had stripped so many leaves from the sheltering trees.
It is a beautiful evergreen with beautiful Lacquered leaves with felt chocolate undersides. :(
The ones from you have cooked leaves where the sun hit them but the leaves in the shaded parts are ok ...will they recover ok? what a shame they were doing so well.
Here is the one I am worried about. Magnolia Exmouth ...now with crunchy leaves. It does have lower leaves still green where it escaped the sun.
