Scorched leaves

I have 3 hanging baskets, spearmint, lemon balm, & peppermint. I've noticed the edges of the leaves, especially on the lemon balm, look like they have been scorched. Why is that? Is something wrong? Can I do anything to fix it? I really don't want to lose my herbs. The marks are even starting on the edges of the new little leaves. The picture is of a lemon balm leaf, but it is dark outside. I can try to get better pictures in the am. Please help!

Re: Scorched leaves

Move it into more shade it is probably getting too much sun. Cut the plant or divide it it should grow back nicely.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.
