Both mint and parsley are easy to grow in containers, both like lots of sunshine and soil on the dry side. If you are keeping the soil too wet the roots can suffocate. Leaves can turn yellow or even wilt suddenly. You may be able to salvage your plants. Let the top of the soil dry out between waterings so the roots can get some oxygen as well as moisture. Hope you see an improvement soon!
