This sounds like they have not been watered adequately. The rootball can go dry and the roots have not yet rooted out into the surrounding soil, which should be happening now.

 Give each plant 20 lites of water as a good slow soaking and again every week until there are signs of healthy new growth, and in any dry spell this summer.
