So you had good foliage? That can be due to too much nitrogen and not enough phosphorus. I'd also take a look at water stress - they'll wilt easily and let you know if there's too little water, but too much can also set them back. If you want to try containers again, I'd go for the self-watering type, and make sure to use a fertilizer that isn't too rich (compost tea, perhaps?). But growing them in the ground should help if it's a nutrient problem or a water issue.
