Big sigh. Not your fault exactly, but it is a common practice of nurseries and people who frequent them to buy a plant that is flowering and transplant it. The nurseries are forcing plants to flower with lots of tlc and constant care. When you bought the plant, it was sent into double shock...no more tlc and fertilizer dribbles and trying to support a bloom and grow roots to boot. Then the sun is no longer indirect and poor plant is in trouble. For the leaves you can check on \' diference between chlorosis and overwatering\' and get a very good tutorial.
You placed the tender plants next to a fence- no air and with a backdrop of fence that will double their heat. Many cities here in the USA do have plants that were not raised as nursery plants and are tougher than the nursery stock. I wish you luck, and more, and if they do die, a planting guide to be able to get maximum health from planting at proper times. P.S. if you wish to give thema chance you might deadhead the flowers so the plant can put growth where it is needed with less strain.
